Hallo Sarita
If you bruise easily, you should have your blood tested to see if your platelet count is normal and also let them look at your coagulation factors to see if your liver is making enough of these. Some herbal medicines can cause thinning of the blood, causing bruising ( like St Johns wort and Ginseng)Using lots of Aspirin can also cause increased bruising.
