Small scratch, brownish bruise on inside of forearm, thigh. What could this be?

I got a very small scratch on the inside of my forearm and then noticed that a brownish bruise formed around it about the size of a dime. I also got another puncture on my thigh and a brownish bruise appeared around it the size of a dime. I never ever saw that on my body before. I am 50 and as far as I know I am healthy.

Hello and thank you for posting your query on HCM
You have mentioned that you have had bruises on your thigh on two occasions after a trivial trauma.
I suggest you to get your platelet counts done along with a complete hemogram.

Let me know the report after getting the test done.

Thanks and take care
