At my cram school a noticeable numbers of younger students have their legs covered in little red/brown bruises or marks of some kind. A number of the female teachers also seem to suffer from this condition; seems to affect the lower legs and shins more prominently, sometimes upper legs but never arms or face.
Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Is it some skin condition, or just bruising from riding on the back of a scooter badly? Just curious as it seems so wide-spread.
There are a lot of mosquito bites in the lower-leg area, too. Those can lead to bruising.
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

There are some kind of bugs here (tiny ones) that their bites scar for pretty long. I think most Taiwanese just scratch it and makes it worse, they don't think that this is anything bad or special to have legs marked like that, but for foreigners it looks kind of scary I guess.
Scooter burns possible too... they heal for very long (learnt that one on myself )
