Itching on outer thigh, bruises. What does this mean?

Hi I am a ballet dancer and have been training quite intensely these past few days, with some really evil cardio work. Last night I began to itch my outer, upper thigh (close to my buttocks , ie saddlebag area) and I woke up this morning with a cluster of small bruises all in a circle, with about a 3in diameter. What does this mean, and should I be worried?

Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes excessive exercising or physical work can induce bruising. You need not worry, just do ice water compresses over the area. The lesions should resolve in few days.
Hope that helped.
Take care
