Which meds are you on? Some of the steroids cause ridiculously easy bruising. I think a vitamin C deficiency can also cause it, but I could be wrong about that.

I get them too, I think I can call them unexplained because I don't pay enough attention if I bang into something but then notice this horrible looking bruise a day later...as I was just at another post on the board here and was explaining that rubbing extra virgin olive oil on bruises heals them quickly, try it and see.
