I have bruising on the top of my foot under my ankle. I also have a nice little cut and knot on the front of my leg for about a month. Is this normal?
Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose conditions or provide medical advice on line. Bruising in any area of the body is usually a sign of having incurred injury or trauma, so all other things equal, bruising is not "normal." Some people do bruise more easily than others. Taking certain medications such as blood thinners can lead to bruising more easily than normal, and come systemic conditions can lead to bruising more than normal. Your best course of action is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine what might be causing the bruising, and the best treatment for it. We hope you will do this and that your condition will soon be resolved.
