In brief: Purpura

Purpura may occur when the platelet count of the blood is low (thrombocytopenia) but there are other causes too.
It can occur when the blood vessel wall is particularly fragile, has been damaged, or if the skin is thin. In elderly people so-called 'senile purpura' is often seen on the outer surface of the arm and back of the hand. See your doctor asap to find what is wrong.
