Should I take her to the doctor or is she fine? She has a bruise on her private

yesterday my 5 year old came home from school she told me that she fell yesterday after lunch when they were playing outside she fell on the monkey bars well yesterday it was just red. She went to the bathroom and she came down stairs and told me it was black now. So I asked to see it and it is all black and blue on one side of her private. Is this anything to worry about? She said it only hurts when she touches it.

  • Id give it a few days. There is really nothing you could do for a bruise but ice it

  • I asked her if she went to the office she said no that the teacher just asked if she wanted to sit down so she sat on the bench for a few she did say it hurt when she came home from school yesterday. She said she cried

  • When I was 13 I feel off my bike and hit the bar (boys bike). I was fine for awhile for the next few days when I peed it felt like I had a bladder infection caused it burned. I can't remember what the doc said it was, it wasn't anything serious I do know that. There was a little bleeding inside me that was causing the burning sensation. So if she dosen't hurt when she pees then I wouldn't worry about it, unless the pain doesn't fade anyway.
