Bruising to lower back painful no injury.
If it is three months without changing it is hard to imagine it is a bruise.

If it is bruising that keeps coming back, then there could be a problem with platelets.

You need those checked, which is a lab test.

You should also have coagulation studies.

Another lab test, that is.

Also make sure that this is not hyper pigmentation of the skin, which can occur from skin damage or certain disease states.
