Thanks for posting your query
Development of a bruise on your lip is suggestive of a bleeding disorder
or bleeding due to raised blood pressure. In hope you are not taking any medicines like aspirin.
You need to consult your physician to get a complete blood coagulation profile checked with APTT and platelet count
to rule out other possible causes like thrombocytopenia
. Your blood pressure also needs monitoring to find out if it is well controlled with medicines.
This can also happen due to a viral infection in the recent past- decreases the synthesis of platelets from the bone marrow.
Presence of any autoimmune disorders
also needs to be ruled out.
The treatment is based on the diagnosis and severity of the problem. Treatment is usually done by fluid infusion, steroids, immunoglobulins
, etc according to the severity of the condition.
Wishing you good health...
