What do rashes on the lower back and buttocks indicate?

Yes I are starting to see numerous dark patches green/brownish in color that look like bruises on my lower back near buttock with one cluster under left arm back area . The patches are sometimes in clusters, they started disappearing then reappearing which is why I am concern.

Recurrent bruising or hematoma formation can occur due to several reasons including medications like aspirin or warfarin, bleeding disorders, coagulation disorders etcetera. Complete metabolic profile, complete blood count with differential, Prothrombin time, bleeding time analysis are needed as a part of the initial evaluation. So please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
