Weird marks on DS's legs
My DS has 5 perfectly round little bruise like things on his legs. They're roughly the size of a pencil eraser. He has 4 on one leg and 1 on the other. They're all on his shin...the solo one on his right leg is a little closer to his knee.

He says they do not hurt or itch. They're the color of an old bruise (that dark greenish, skin tone color, kwim?) but I only noticed them today...and as far as I know no one has been stabbing him with pencil erasers LOL.

Any ideas??

DS gets those all the time, I just assumed it was because he was clumsy and falls/runs in to things all the time.

Any siblings that may be grabbing him??

I have a clumsy son who is always bumping into things and he gets tiny bruises like that all the time.

My son is constantly covered in those bruises on his legs b/c he is super clumsy. ;) I don't think you have anything to worry about. :)

Oh good! I wasn't completely panicked it just seemed so odd, the size and shape of them, they're perfectly round.

He gets bruises all the time because he's a klutz but usually they're more or less in proportion to whatever he managed to run into or trip over but he's never had multiple little bruises like this...they seriously look like someone stabbed him with a #2 (or from my extensive Law & order watching cigarette burns...minus the burn) lol so bizarre!!

If he bruises easily, it could be just from pressing up against something too hard - like if he was leaning over something to reach.

my 21 mo old has these all the time on his shins. and the backs of his legs, but he runs into everything and rough houses with his dad and teen brothers so I figure that is what it is!

Re: Weird marks on DS's legs
Maybe impression bruises from falling onto lego blocks? They have little circles the size of an eraser sticking up?
