Thanks for writing in.
There can be a list of conditions that can present in this way. It can be a purely skin condition or a sign of some underlying systemic condition.
Most common reasons for such a bruising is an allergic reaction, a fungal infection or developing Herpes Zoster.
I strongly recommend you to plan a visit to a Dermatologist to find out exactly what is causing that bruising? & to get appropriate treatment.
Hope I have provided you the desired clue. Please write back if you want to discuss any more point.
Hope you get well soon.
Best Regards.
