Bruise in thigh, reddish and fleshy colored, in a circle. Is it a rash?

hi, i have a bruise roughly the size of a golfball on my inner right thigh. It looks kind of rashlike as well, and it s reappeared for the second time now in the same place. It doesn t appear to be a tick bite because there is no bullseye. It s a reddish fleshy color. Although it isn t overly irritating, I m alarmed because it s come back again, and It seems too perfect of a circle to be a mere bruise. thank you for your time...

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having ecchymosis. There is a blood collected underneath and in the skin. It may be called purpura.

In your case the cause of purpura should be found out.for that you should consult dermatologist and should have blood test to find out the culprit disease. Bleeding disorders,clotting disorders,friction,infections,drugs,trauma...etc may cause purpura.

Take vitamin Cand K. Thrombophob oint may improve the condition.

You may be benefitted. The cause of relaps may be found out. And that would be treated.

I hope you got my answer
