THanks for the query
It is hard to judge by your question whther it is bruising or a rash. I am going to consider it as brusing as rash would not be just around the legs and it would a little more widespread. Get CBC, pt ,ptt ,INR and visit your physician for further care.
For now try taking vitamin C supplements.
