Bleeding disorder: I would talk to your doctor to rule out a bleeding disorder. Are you taking things that can thin your blood like aspirin? Anyone in your family bleed easily?

A lot of reasons: A lot of things can cause people to bruise easily, including low platelet, dysfunctional plt, and even clogging factors. Do you have frequent nose bleeds? Bleeding into joints? Regardless, if you are concerned, a simple blood work can answer a lot.
