A child's skin is delicate and can bruise easily, particularly when they start walking, running and climbing. Bruises are caused by bleeding under the skin where blood vessels have burst and can be tender to touch. A cold compress or ice pack can be used to reduce inflamation and swelling, and ibuprofen or paracetamol for children can be administered if your child is in pain. A bruise will start as purple or blue in colour and change to a light brown through the healing process. Most bruises should clear within two weeks. If you are ever concerned about your child's health, always contact your doctor or healthcare provider.
