In brief: Ringworm bruise

It would be most uncommn to get a bruise after ringworm.
Why? The fungus affects the outermost portion of the skin where there is no blood. The skin beneath does get affected, but rarely enough to cause a bruise. Persons whom have clotting disorders or who take blood thinners certainly can get bruising, but this is not common.
