Thanks for posting your query.
Easy bruising can be for many causes such as
- Platelet disorders
of counts like thrombocytopenia
- Disorders of function like Glanzman syndrome where platelets are lazy i.e. normal in number but slow to clumping and degranulation.
- Deranged Prothrombin time
(PT) /activated Partial Thromboplastin time
(aPTT) secondary to many causes including iatrogenic cause by taking warfarin for cardiac arrhythmias
- And lax and fragile skin secondary to senile atrophy of dermis and reduced connective tissue
supportive parenchyma and as a result of treatment with steroids.
So I believe getting your blood counts repeated along with Capillary fragility test can be helpful to detect bleeding tendency.
Discuss about these possibilities with your treating physician and he/she can stream line these tests for you. You also may start with Vitamin C and Vitamin A supplements to improve skin texture and reduce easy bruising.
I hope this answers your query.
