What is the hot purple bruise on my thigh?

I woke up this a.m. with a hot, purple bruise on my lower, inner thigh. There s been no recent trauma. No punture wounds that I can see. 12 hours later (now) it has turned black with a whitish odd shaped, white circle in the center. It s very sore. What could it be? Should I seek medical attention?

Hello,

A sudden appearance of a bruise without any history of injury that is painful can be due to an infection and needs a medical attention. Do consult your physician for a direct examination.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopedic Surgeon
