bruises can be due to a problem in the coagulation cascade. I would advise you to get a coagulation profile done. Also consult a dermatologist to know if it is bruising or any other skin condition for accurate diagnosis and treatment. In case the symptoms worsen call your emergency medical helpline. Avoid self medications. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
