Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

A bruise can mean many things in an 8 year old and should be evaluated by his doctor. This could be due to trauma, a result of bullying or due to an infection.

The true nature of the bruise can only be established by a doctor's clinical examination.

I would suggest that you take him to the ill-child clinic tomorrow.

Hope this helps.
