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.

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
