the most likely explanation for your bruises could be due to thrombocytopenia ( decrease in platelets ) caused by plavix ( CLOPIDEGROL ) and aspirin.Decrease in platelets can cause bruises.You must consult your octor and get the estimation of platelets done.Further treatment and management would depend upon finding the platelets number.
