what is a bruise
What is a bruise?
  • A bruise is a commonskin injury that results in a discoloration of the skin.
  • This occurs when a part of the body is hurt and the muscle fibers and connective tissue underneath are crushed but the skin doesn't break. Basically, blood from the ruptured capillaries at the skin's surface pop right under the skin;the blood gets trapped, forming a red or purplish mark that hurts when touched.
  • The causes of bruising can be on the general spectrum of any rough trauma to the skin.
  • Examples:

Exercise, trauma to any surface of skin, flipping in a go-cart, horse playing, jumping of a moving car, car accident, getting slapped on the face by an ex. girlfriend or boyfriend, falling, tripping, falling while pregnancy, high school fights, bumping into a chair, desk or side of bed.
