I was diagnosed withEBV about 2 months ago. Recently I have been bruising really easily. It happens mainly on my stomach area. Is this part of EBV?
Hi @jnk and welcome to Connect. That bruising must be very confusing to suddenly becoming bruised very easily.
I'd like to introduce you to @mrmie @hahnsolo and @suesm all have mentioned Epstein-Barr Virus in the past and may be able to offer their support.

Back to you @jnk, have you asked your doctor about this bruising? What other symptoms have you been experiencing?
Hi @jnk. I have experienced EBV but not bruising. That sounds concerning! If it were me, I'd be sure my doctor knew immediately and proper bloodwork be done. I hope you feel better soon!
