bruising??

a few days ago i saw what looked like a small bruise on my two month old's big toe. it didnt seem tender or painful so i just let it slide. the next day i saw the same moar on one of his fingers. still no pain so i figured it was just a bruise. but tonight i found a rather large (size of dime) spot inside his ear! now im worried. has anyone ever expierienced this??

  • YOU NEED TO CALL YOUR PEDITRICIAN ASAP. MONGOLIAN SPOTS IS WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKT AND THERE ARE ALSO FORMS OF CANCER THAT WILL ALLOW TINY (FOR NO REASON) BRUISES, DONT LET YOUR DOC LOOK AT THEM AND SAY "OH HE HAS A LIL BRUISE" MAKE HIM FIND OUT WHAT IT IS.
