Tiny unexplained bruises on forearms, near veins, cause ?

hi, over the past 6 months or so I have been getting tiny unexplained bruises on my forearms......usually underneath near to the veins. I went to see my doc a few months back when I first spotted them, at this point I had some on my right knee too. She said I had burst capillaries and got me a liver and kidney function test done- which came back normal. However, i am still getting regular wrist bruises. ..... ?

easy bruising or bruising for no reason can happen with normally elderly , since as age increases,capillaries can become fragile and skin becomes more thinner. other causes for the same are- low platelet count, clotting disorders and certain medications. please get your complete blood count. take care
