Hi, My four year old boy is constantly full of tiny bruises. He does play, run and bump a lot, but other boys his age is not so full of bruises as he is.
What can I do - or what can the cause be of his easy bruising.
Thank you,

Hanlie, it doesn’t have to be due to something serious, but it might be. The best would be to have blood tests done to make sure it isn’t due to anaemia, haemophilia, etc. Good luck.
