Child has reddish,raised, bruise like blotch on heal. No pain and itch. Suggestions?

My 23 month old daughter has a reddish purple, slightly raised, bruise-like blotch on the bottom of her left heal. She can t tell me if its bothering her, however, I can put pressure on it without so much as a flinch from her and it doesn t seem to itch . She has no fever , is not lethargic, and is eating normal. She walks barefoot on the hardwood flooring. It doesn t look like a planter s wart , nor does it look like the pictures online of hand/foot/ mouth disease . Sight unseen its probably impossible to tell what it is. I plan on taking her to the doctor Monday. Any clue?

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that there might be something bite on the part.
Give some anti histamine like Cetrizine syrup for 2 days and wait for the result.
Apply some moisturizing or anti histamine cream.
Ok and bye.
