No fever
No bruising like this in the past
No history of trauma or bleeding disorder
No medical conditions/concerns; I am perfectly fine other than the bruising

I have an alcohol and ibuprofen in addition to a sunburn in that area over the last couple of days (on vacation!)

Will try to attach the CBC report.I attached the CBC w/diff report from July and also one from February of this year which included a lipid panel and comp metabolic of panel. I also had a full CT scan and no liver problems.

Brief Answer:
Your reports are normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.

Your all reports of complete blood count, liver function test, renal function test, electrolytes, sugar, lipid profile are normal. So it doesn't seems to be serious cause.
You don't have past history or family history.

So it can be due nutrients deficiency.

Vitamin K, vitamin C, Iron or Zink deficiency can leads to such types of bruise.

You should take proper diet like milk, seeds, banana, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables etc.

Mostly it will disappear by itself. If you found further bruises then you should go for complete coagulation profile once.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you very good health.
