Bruises on the body could be due to a skin condition,allergic reactions or on some infections especially viral infections. If your doctor has examined you and ruled out skin conditions and infections then allergy will be most likely.But if you develop bodyache and fever then there may be infection involved here.You need to observe for a day or two of you are developing fever,in which case,some blood tests are necessary.Meanwhile,take paracetamol for the bodyache.
