couple of questions : when my wounds are healing and begin to scab over they get really itchy, is this a symptom of slow healing in EDS? I get unexplained bruises that range from pale to quite dark and have very visible blood vessels, including capillaries, but so far only have a provisional diagnosis of hEDS, which this isn't a symptom of. is it possible I could have multiple types of EDS. (my doctor said its a good idea to be tested for all types of EDS just in case)

      i have hEDS & i take a long time to heal as well but itching is just a common thing that happens when they are healing. my doctor said easy bruising is a symptom of my hEDS but it could be different for each person
