What causes bruised lump under the skin?

My daughter had a small lump under her skin with a small surface bruise. It started about a month ago. The lump is gone but the surface bruise remains. Is this something I should have a dermatologist check or any ideas on what something like that may be? Thank you.

HI

Thanks for posting your query.

It could be due to fungal infection or a skin disease which needs to be evaluated . Because 1 month is a long time and if it is persisting for such long period it needs evaluation.

Kindly upload the picture so that I can see it and let you know what it is . Or else kindly consult a dermatologist.

Hope this helps .
Any clarifications feel free to ask .

Regards.
