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

That is interesting.

Bruise is caused by the bleeding from the blood vessel under the skin.

Trauma and blood thinners are common causes.

In their absence, this is considered spontaneous.

Spontaneous bleeding can be caused by the drop in platelets, clotting disorder, autoimmune disorder, liver disease, malignancy.

Less common but needs to be investigated further.

Are you on any medication or supplement at all?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
