Thanks for writing to health care magic.
It is normal for bruise to change color. But those white spots on the bruise require physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis. Was a X ray of the injured portion done? Is your mother having any fever? How is her pain changing with time? Is it subsiding or increasing?
Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
