911DOC :

Those look very much like simple bruises in the healing phase.

911DOC :

Some bruises appear to be blue or reddish or purple when you get them.

911DOC :

Some more minor bruises can have this appearance

911DOC :

I would expect these to be gone in a few days.

Customer:

They are a bit sore, so that would explain it. But I don't remember getting hurt in that area. However, I did receive some shots in that area. Could that explain it?

911DOC :

yes. the shots could explain it for sure. and sometimes we bruise from minor bumps without noticing that they were particularly painful.

Customer:

Ok. Thanks!
