My mom noticed a relatively small patch of slightly purply-red skin appear on her chin mid-afternoon today.
There was no sign of anything this morning, and she is worried about it.
We have looked all through the medical book, and searched online, but can't seem to find anything matching the symptoms.
She said it was slightly sore, but not really painful.
It looks a little like a bruise, but she can't remember bashing it at all.

If anybody can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank-you in advance,

  • Please ask your mum if she by chance hasn't taken a couple of aspirins in the last few days. This could cause it. :)

  • if you have any bruising I suggest this stuff called BruiseMD that works pretty well to get the bruise healed up fast. I found it online (b r u i s e m d . c o m) and have heard other people refer to it in this forum before. I thinks its a pretty handy thing to have around just for this sort of thing, hope that helps.
