Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Before I want to confirm first, does the bluish circle that you see looks like a bruise on the skin? Can you see a small wound in the middle of a bluish circle? Is there a history of trauma or previous impact?
Basically a bluish circle can be seen on the skin because of the rupture of blood vessels under the skin which causes blood to collect under the skin. This condition most often occurs due to blunt force impact on the skin, but can also occur due to other things for example:
fracture of the needle bone into the skin causing injury to blood vessels (eg drug injection, immunization, infusion, etc.) use of certain drugs for certain rare bleeding disorders, snake bites, insects, spiders or animals other small toxic can also cause this condition If the condition occurs suddenly when your child wakes up (no previous injury history, no injection history, drug use, etc.), then chances are the child has a certain bleeding disorder or is bitten by a certain animal . Generally, if you have a certain bleeding disorder, bluish bruises will appear again in other places. If you see puncta or bite marks (it can look like a small hole or small wound) above the bluish circle, it is very likely that your child will be bitten by an animal while your child is sleeping.
To be sure, direct examination of the lesion must be performed. We recommend that you take your child to the doctor for a direct examination. For now, if the pain is really annoying, you can give a mild pain reliever such as Paracetamol and compress the lesion on the skin with a cold compress for the first 1-2 days. Afterwards, you can apply warm compresses in the bluish area. If you notice that the bluish is getting bigger and spreading, checking with your pediatrician should be done immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
