Bruising: I suspect trivial trauma, probably from footwear, that's causing the bruising. Serious blood deficiencies would cause scattered or generalized bruising, bleeding from gums,etc. Taking aspirin,anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve or corticosteroid medication, vitamin C deficiency can also causing easy bruising. See MD as needed.
