Skin bruising can easily occur at older age because of thinning of skin and also because of fragile blood vessels of the skin. Even a minor trauma, which might not be noticeable can cause skin bruising. If you are on any blood thinners like ecosprin, coumadin etc that further increases chances of bruising. The cause of concern is when there are multiple areas of bruising of skin on the body or if there is frequent recurrence, then you need to consult your doctor for need of investigating for bleeding disorders.
