Bruises or Splotches?

My first bout with GBS in 2007, reddish thumb-sized “splotches” appeared on my legs, mostly below the knees, and they are still there. One of the docs who I saw was a Rheumatologist. He said that they were caused by tiny blood vessels which “closed down” as a result of the nerves shutting down. He said there’s no danger, but they don’t look good.
