It is often bruised, “why is that, but the body isn’t hot? I’m only 6 years old
Hello Ikromah Alfiyah, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.
Maybe what you mean is bruises or purplish red that can be seen on the skin. There are various causes that can cause the appearance of bruises in children. It should be noted again when the appearance of bruises, its location, until there is a history of injury or trauma that can cause it.
Bruising is a condition that describes the condition of the rupture of blood vessels under the skin. Actually these bruises can also occur in other organs of the body, but the most easily seen and often happens is on the skin. This condition is most often caused by trauma / injury. Hard enough collisions can usually cause rupture of the arteries and bruising. The thing to note is that bruising occurs in various locations without caused by a clear cause. There are several conditions / diseases that can cause bruising easily on the body, for example:
Hemophilia, which is a congenital disease and causes a disruption in blood clotting factors so that children often experience bleeding, bruising (usually can be found in the joint area, such as the knee joint when the child is actively crawling, and other body parts), bleeding wounds that are long stopped, and so on.
Disorders of blood chips or also known as platelets. Platelets are a component of blood cells that function in the process of blood clotting. There are several conditions that can cause a decrease in the number of these platelets (thrombocytopenia), causing a risk of bleeding. In addition, there is also a condition where the body's immune cells mistakenly recognize platelets as a foreign body, and cause destruction of the platelets (auto immune disease). This condition is also called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP).
Malignancy or blood cancer. In some cases of blood cancer can be found various symptoms, such as bruising easily, the body feels weak, pale, easily affected by infections, and so forth.
Other conditions or diseases in the body.
Keep in mind, bruising can occur without a fever. More information about 'quot' is meant by you. If your child has a bruise for no apparent reason (not due to an injury strong enough to cause a bruise), it is necessary to suspect a condition or other underlying cause. My suggestion is to check the condition of your child to a pediatrician. The doctor will ask further about the condition, the history of your child's illness, to the history of similar diseases in your family. The doctor will also do a complete examination of your child, and usually if necessary, will also be carried out supporting tests such as blood tests to establish the diagnosis.
