Bruises are very common in children with haemophilia.
A bruise is not usually cause for alarm unless it is on the person’s head or neck, the person has a hard time moving, the bruise hurts, the lump in the bruise gets larger or does not go away, or there is numbness, or a tingling feeling along with the bruising.
If any of these symptoms are experienced, a physician or local hemophilia treatment centre should be consulted.
