Q.

Bruises easily....

My daughter almost 7 has legs that look like a war zone. She is a bit of a tomboy (with 3 brothers!!) but everyday she seems to have a new bruise on her legs. Normally they are quite big and dark - very purply. Otherwise she is very healthy. She has been an allergy type child with asthma sometimes but in general is healthy. Should I have a Dr look at it ?

This is probably normal but if you are concerned about her ask your doctor to do a full blood count to make sure all is well.
