Lower back bruises. What could have caused it?

Hi. My 4 year old daughter has several small bruises on her lower back. There are approximately 7 and they are all around the size of a nickel. I noticed a couple a few days ago and wondered what she could have done to herself, but just now noticed that there were many more. I have wracked my brain to think of anything she may be doing during play or anything else that could cause these bruises. She is not in daycare or school and is with me all day every day, so I know abuse is not the cause. I cannot imagine what has caused this and I m very concerned! Please can you give me any advice?

She maybe suffering from ITP or Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. You should get her Complete Blood Counts (CBC) done including Platelets done and see if there is any drastic fall in platelet count.
