Long lasting bruises

I don't bruise very easily but a month or so ago I got some bruises on my thigh from a dog jumping on me, and a bruise line where my partner would rub my thigh lightly over jeans. They have not gotten any better, and it's very unusual for me. I'm not on any medications, but suffer headaches and tiredness a lot.

Hi!
If the bruise is coming only by someone jumping or you or repeatedly rubbing you at a particular place, then it can be pressure urticaria. The only way to avoid it is to avoid repeated or strong pressure at appoint.
If you are not on any medications like anticoagulants, blood thinners or birth control pills then this bruising could also be due to clotting disorders, low platelet count, fragile spider veins, deep vein thrombus, deficiency of Vitamin B12, folic acid, or Vit K, a liver disease or certain cancers. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
