needs investigation

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
From your description and history two points are very important Bruising easily and heavy menstrual bleed.
This could be due to some clotting disorders.
Take her to your doctor and get her investigated with cbc and coagulation screen.
If everything is normal you can be assured she is safe.
The darkness below eyes is a sign of allergic reactions.
I usually prescribe monteluekast daily for a month to see if it helps.
Wishing your child good health.
Regards
Dr Arun
