Thank you for the response. The bruising is actually better than when it started but the white spots remain and seem to turn red and dry out when sun hits it.

Brief Answer:
These white spots seem to be like vitiligo!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

These white spots are suggestive of vitiligo. This is a whitish discoloration of areas of the skin. This may be related to disease of the immune system. I suggest you get this evaluated by a dermatologist for evaluation and management.

The bruising will eventually fade away and there is no reason to be worried about this.

Keep me update on what your immediate thoughts are.
