HelloCustomer

It is very difficult to diagnose without examination. I strongly recommend a visit your general practitioner for examination, to be sure that there aren't any broken blood vessels that are causing the bruised appearance. In the meantime you can apply cool compresses while lying down to soothe the area.

Expert:  Terry replied 8 years ago.

Hi,

Very small blood vessels can break if you rub the area a little too firmly (not even realizing it), some medications can cause this (not wellbutrin), if you fall or bang the area, accidentally. This is why It is necessary to have a doctor look at it. It is not a normal symptom and is apparent for a reason.

Sincerely,

Terry
