Dear Bridget,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You can take homeopathic medicine Arnica 30 4 tabs 3 times in a day to remove the bruises which will surely remove them and for stopping to occur them repeatedly you have to go for thrombocyte count .It can occur due to low thrombocyte count or in other words thrombocytopenia.

If it is low than another management should be done after consulting your doctor.

Hi brigate,there are many factors needs to be seen before arriving a conclusion.Bruises at many places means there is something wrong with clotting system.This could be idiopathic(without any cause),due to viral infection,drugs etc.Please get in tough with your doctor and go for some investigation like blood counts and liver tests to come to a diagnosis.please do not ignore this.bye and take care.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
