Symptoms of Bruises

Bleeding under the skin produces discoloration – usually a deep blue or purple color. As bruises heal, they may become yellowish in color. Other symptoms may include:

  • Tenderness to the touch in the discolored area, especially in the days following the injury;
  • Swelling.

A foot bruise may be a symptom of a deeper injury to the skin and tissue, especially in the case of a contusion (deep bruise) or ankle sprain.
