Hi welcome To healthcare magic
A bruise is due to blunt injury causing collection of blood. If it without major injury we can suspect vitamin or bleeding disorder . so kindly consult your physician. You can take some multivitamin tablets. Thank you
large bruise developed ... followed by lost 46 ibs. it is highly indiacative that you r suffering from Diabetes. kindly check your blood sugar level . and x-ray of humerus to rule out osteomylitis of tuburcular origin.
