my 24 year old has been on zithro & bactrim for a while... and bruising may be a side effect of the bactrim. Have been giving him virastop once a day for the last week or two. He has just begun bruising and had a nosebleed yesterday. Would you suspect the Virastop? :
Protease Thera-blend
Mucolase
Catalase
Serratiopeptidase
Nattokinase NSK-SD Blend
Mineral Blend
'Virastop contains a high potency, exclusive blend of proteases enzymes to support the immune system. Virastop contains eight different proteases which can break down undigested protein, cellular debris, and toxins in the blood. Protease is able to dissolve almost all proteins as long as they are not components of living cells. For a protease enzyme to digest proteins they have to be attached to a dead organism, damaged, or be a protein that does not belong in the body.'

I am going to contact the manufacturer...

Could be that it thinned his blood too much!

I do expect that it is likely that the bruising is from the blood being too thin... but I have read that there can be bruising from low Vitamin D, Bactrim side effect, or too much thinning from the nattokinase (etc). Have to really figure out what is going ont so I know what to do for him.

Yes, I agree with tutu. If I take too many supplements that thin blood I get very big bruises. Enzymes taken on an empty stomach are on the list that I watch for myself. Consider taking him off for a week and see if the bruising stops.
