Suggest treatment for bruises on the thigh

hi I m a 16 year old girl I ve been battling a cold for the past 4 days with dry cough, little sore throat and hoarse voice. I recently noticed two circular bruises on my left thigh near my knee. They re dark purple and the size of a dime. I don t remember any possible way I could ve gotten them. One of them hurts like a bruise but one of them doesn t hurt at all. I m just a little worried because I have been reading so many things on random bruises and it s scaring me. should I consult a doctor right away? Or wait? And if I do wait when should I go see one for sure? Thanks

I have gone through your query and bruises could be due to some unnoticed trauma. Keep them under observation. If it recurs then consult a doctor and get it evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
