First the diagnosis: Red bruise-like knots could be bruises or a number of different skin conditions. One such condition, erythema nodosum looks like bruises and is painful. Erythema nodosum can be caused by infections, medications and inflammatory conditions in the body. Before knowing how to treat your condition, it needs to be diagnosed properly. Please see your dermatologist.

Probably not: Bruising and abrasions can happen with sex. If it is light bleeding from sex then it should go away within a day or two.
