hi welcome to HCM

-sudden bruising may be a result of a seemingly insignificant compression of skin or there may be no skin injury recollected.

-sudden bruising can occur when the blood vessels are weakened by diseases
such as scurvy,
medications (such as aspirin, prednisone and prednisolone),

-sudden bruising can also occur because of absent or deficient blood-clotting elements.

-Local leakage of blood into the skin from the capillaries that occurs spontaneously, without injury, and results in a flat, purplish discolored area is referred to as ecchymosis.

kindly rule out all possible conditions with complete blood picture

I hope this is helpful for you, thank you
