Noticed a number of small bruises on the inside upper arm, after practising a lot of flow yoga. Solution?

Hi! I have practiced a lot of vinyasa or flow yoga for the last year. I have noticed a number of small bruises on the inside of my upper arms, as if I d been grabbed there roughly, which is not the cause. Any ideas? This bruising is a new phenomenon, in last few weeks only. We do many tricep push-ups in our training classes.

Thanks for your query
Bruising may occur due to rupture of capillaries of skin due to any injury or sometimes spontaneously.
The Yoga done last year should not have any effect on this.
If the push-ups are causing any trauma to a particular part of skin and bruising is visible there, you will need to be more careful.However, this is not a routine cause.
You can take Oral Vit.C to help in this condition.Doing warm compresses helps in faster resolution of the bruises.
Hope this helps.Take care!
