Should I be concerned about a discolored spot on my childs leg?

My child has a spot on his leg that has become discolored, should we see the doctor?

The spot on your child's leg may be one of a range of different possible things. It could be anything from a bruise to a birthmark to an insect bite. If you are unsure of what the spot on his leg is, you should set up an appointment with your child's doctor as soon as possible.

It all depends. If the spot is from a minor hit that you witnessed and know it will go away in several days and your child is not in too much pain then you can wait it out. However if the spot has beent there awhile and you do not know what it is, of course go see the doctor.

If the discoloration you have noticed is not a bruise and persists for longer than two weeks, you should consult a doctor because it represents a change from the norm.
