Bruising on Legs

Was changing 2yo DS this morning and noticed about 5 small (about the size of a 5p) bruises on his legs.
Thought at the time that it was strange them all being the same size etc but we were in the play park all morning yesterday and just put it down to him barrelling about in there.
Changed his nappy again later on and another few have cropped up, about 8 in total. all the same size, shape and only on his legs - is it just normal kids stuff or should I give GP a ring?

You need to get him seen. I would mark a cross with a biro next to each bruise you've seen. Then if you see more later, you'll know they are new bruises. Where are the bruises? Outer legs or inner legs?

Hi,
Thank you for replying!
They are on his shins/knees. When he was in the bath earlier I checked him over and he doesn't seem to have them anywhere else.

Ok. Shins and knees I wouldn't be so concerned about. Just keep an eye. But if he developed bruising on the insides of his legs is be worried.
