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.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
