Small yellow color bruises along the spine, on top of the vertebrae. Reasons?

Hi, my 14 year old daughter has had small bruises on the middle part of her back right along her spine for a few years. I'm not sure what caused it but the bruises seem to be right on top of the vertebrae. The bruises have not gone away and are a tad yellow in color. Can you please explain what the cause of the bruises might be?

Thank you for posting your query.
Bruises can not last for so many years. So, we need to confirm what your daughter has on your back. Possibly, these could be skin lesions. If you can upload a picture of the skin lesions, it would be useful.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
