In brief: Many reasons
Bruising may be normal, and the predisposition to bruising can be inherited genetically.
It may also be an indication of a vitamin deficiency, or a deficiency in the compounds and cells needed for blood clotting. Your doctor can run simple blood tests to determine the causes of bruising.
