Hi. Bruising which is spontaneous may be due to different conditions including a clotting disorder, platelet deficiency, or superficial thrombophlebitis or a vessel wall/ connective tissue disorder. If on evaluation all this is negative, then i dont think you need to worry since this may be a common benign phenomenon in many. Drugs like corticosteroids may also cause such bruising. So get yourself evaluated for the above before deciding everthings normal. Thank you.
