What is the cause of recurring bruise on the same spot ?

my 3 year old son has woken up with a round bruise/bite 4 times in the past year in the exact same spot. It feels like a small lump under the skin and it is roughly the size of a loonie/dollar. It s white in the center and red all around. I have also had this happen to me twice in the past year and it is in the same spot as well on my forearm .

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum 

Your son have developed a bruise over your skin due to injury.
A bruise develops due to internal tear in blood vessels and bleeding.

Just apply thrombophobe or hirudoid cream over the affected area.
Thrombophob ointment contains Heparin-Benzyl Nicotinate which improves the blood supply and prevents clots, so it will help in faster clearing of the clotted blood.
Since he seems to be developing bruise at the same place again and again , you need to find out the cause of recurrent trauma at the same site again and again.

Hope it helps
