Who Can Get Bruises?
Virtually anyone can get a bruise, you, me your mom, dad, sister and brother alike!.
However some people bruise easily, while others don't. Why? Bruising depends on several things, such as:
how tough the skin tissue is, whether someone has certain diseases or conditions, whether a person's taking certain medications
Also, blood vessels tend to become fragile as people get older
, which is why elderly people tend to bruise more easily.
