Brief Answer:
It can be a hematologic disorder.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I see that you suffer from recurrent bruises . In your age there can be two reasons mainly .

First one can be that you may be on some anticoagulant medication leading to all this . Second can be that you may be having some hematologic disorder.

I advise you to see a hematologist , get you CBC , PT , INR , Peripheral smear done . Only after these a diagnosis could be made.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
