Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

How large is it?

Is it enlarging in size?

Was it examined by doctor?

Is there any pain or any other symptom?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No pain. And did not check by the doctor and its across the nose bridge about the size of thumb
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no it's about the same size. Sometimes it goes away And sometime it shows up
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the input.

In 2 months bruise would disappear.

It may not be bruise.

It can be hemangioma.

Spontaneous bruise can occur in children without major trauma.

This can occur in bleeding disorders.

But in those conditions, bruise would appear in other parts of body too.

As it has become more prominent & reappearing, I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

Doctor can take blood count if he feels necessary.

I hope this information will be helpful.
