A 30-year-old female asked:

My 2 year old bruises very easily. a small bump or small fall she will bruise and bruising stays for 2 to 3 weeks. is this something to be concerned about? my older child never bruised so quickly

Worth a visit: Some falls/bruising would be expected in a rambunctious child but the frequency & duration of the bruises seems excessive. I would want to see her in the office & would likely order several tests.
