a purple spot most likely is a bruise or a vein or a broken blood vessel.
can you upload a clear jpg photo of the area so I can better see?
taking aspirin or coumadin or plavix or other blood thinners can thin your blood and cause easier bruising.
sometimes you can hit your arm at night time or unintentionally which can cause a bruise.
