Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
With your increased tendency to bruise, I would strongly suggest that you should have a complete blood count done. I would to have a look at your platelet count because a low platelet count can cause one to have increased risk of bruising and increased risk of bleeding from other sites of the body as well.
Additionally I would like that you should also have a coagulation profile done as well to see if your blood clots normally or not.
If you are on aspirin (baby aspirin) or some other blood thinner like clopidogrel or warfarin for some reason this may in itself cause one to have increased bruisability.
Kindest Regards
