Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Are you on any medication daily?

Some medication have blood thinning properties as the common explanation.

Also minor trauma can cause bruises.

Otherwise, this can be due ti the hereditary bleedibng disorder.

Relevant blood tests--blood count with differential, coagulation profile, vliver function test should be checked in that case.
Best wishes,
