Why are there unexplained bruises appearing on my lower legs and starting to appear on the tops of my feet?
Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or provide medical advice on line. The best course of action for you to take is to consult your primary care physician, especially if the bruising has been noticeable for a week or longer. There are several possible causes for such bruising, one of which is a sprain. But if you have not incurred any injury in that area, it's not likely that is the issue. Your physician is the best resource for helping determine what is going on and advising you on treatment, since he or she knows your medical history and any condition you may have to which the bruising could be related. We hope you will consult your physician, and that your condition will very quickly be resolved.
