I was on Entocort for quite a while, and I had strange bruising only on my forearms. If I just barely touched something, like lightly bumping the edge of my desk, I'd get a cherry-red bruise that looked like bleeding between the skin layers. There was no soreness. I could even cause it by poking my arm with my finger. I had all kinds of clotting tests and everything was okay, but you should have your doc check this out to be sure there's no problem.
