Thanks for any answer

Brief Answer:
suggest a platelet count and pt/inr

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am assuming from the query that you are on no medications.
I think that a bruise that had no prior cause like an injury needs to be tested.
I would suggest a platelet count and pt/inr.
Meanwhile initiate Folate, Vit C and Vit B supplementation.

Best of luck
Dr Mittal
