Thanks for posting your query at
I can understand your concern.
you surely have ecchymoses (bruises). this is a side effect of humira most likely. I would suggest that you mention it to your doctor.
The ecchymoses will clear up on its own in a few days.
Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care
