bruising that takes 2 months to go away

Resolved Question:

A little over two months ago my sister hit right above her knee on a wooden pallet causing a bruise. It has taken over two months for the bruise to fade. What would cause a bruise to last that long?

Most bruises will disappear in 3 weeks. There are some possibilities for long lasting bruises. She should see a doctor as soon as possible for evaluations. You can find details by clicking the following blue/purple color links.
