Brief Answer: Need to investigate Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for using health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question and I can understand what you are going through. The fact that you are bruising without any reason suggests that there is bleeding tendency in your body. This needs to be investigated. You will have to check your bleeding time, clotting time, platelet count etc. The platelet count should be atleast above 0000. If it is less than that then it is a cause of worry. Moreover, some medicines like steroid if taken over a period can cause such problem. There is no need to panic but yes, you need to get investigated. Hope I am able to help you with your concerns. If you have any further queries, I will be more than glad to help you. If not you can close the discussion. Regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy MD
