Bruises on leg. Having sore muscles. Could both be related?

hello, this is woojin jung
i am 16 years old male, and 9th grade
it was about 1 or 2 weeks ago
when i was sitting in the living room, my aunt saw bruise inside of my right leg
I did not know why i got bruise, but i did not think seriously since bruise will disappear in short period.
but today, i realized accidently that it still is on my leg

one thing that I did not do before i got bruise was track at school. And I had sore muscles for a while. could it related with bruise?

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Sore muscle and bruise seems to be related to each other and might be due to the result of muscle strain. I suggest to take rest. apply muscle relaxant gel over it . If bruise persisted or other one appeared without a cause, get it evaluated by your doctor.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
