Is it normal to have blue bruise on infant s face after hitting?

I have a 2 month old who was accidentily hit in the face with a cell phone 14 days ago. Some days it seems like it s going away and then other times it looks worse. It is blue in the middle with red on the edges that resemble broken spider veins? I bruise easily and she is very pale...is this normal?

Hi,
Welcome To Healthcare Magic.

I can understand your concern regarding to your child’s health.

This type of bruise is not normal but very common occurs after some blunt injury which breaks some very small and tiny veins, which has happened with your daughter by cell phone.

So, for subside bluish bruise with red edges, you should apply the ice on the affected area 5 to 7 times in a day for 4-5 minutes for 5 to 7 days.

After doing this, I hope your child will get well sooner.

Wish her good health.
Take Care, Thank You.
