Q.

Bruising

My 5 year old son has had a bruise on his cheek for 3 weeks which isn't fading, it looks as new today as it did a few weeks ago, surely this is not normal. Is there anything I should do about it?

Regards
Mandy

This does sound unusual. If your child has any other unusual bruises or if this one persists until next week, then it will require evaluation.
