In brief: See your primary md

The path to the most accurate answer is to start with a thorough history and exam.Roughly 80% of the time it's enough to make a diagnosis.
In many cases, other testing may be needed to sift through the numerous possibilities, many harmless, to get a definitive answer. The md tries to use occam's razor (don't be scared, it's a metaphor):find the simplest, most direct solution. Your "razor"? See md.

In brief: See a doctor

If one reads about easy bruisablity in the medical books, platelet abnormally is high on the list as a cause.
The elderly with thin skin will commonly bruise easily especially if taking Aspirin or blood thinner. When easy brusing is accompanied by other symptoms such as nosebleed, prolonged bleeding after cutting while shaving, then see a doctor for evaluation.

In brief: Finding cause

If you indeed having easy bruising and bleeding, i recommend finding a cause/causes of it, as there may be some genetic diseases that affect your bleeding.
