Bruise on forehead that won't go away


For about a year now, maybe longer, I've had a bruise on my forehead. It doesn't hurt or anything, and I don't get headaches more often than normal. I haven't been too worried about it, but I figured it would be gone by now.

I sleep on my stomach, and often I wake up with my hand right under my forehead, sometimes in a fist, so I figured that might have something to do with it. I don't have health insurance, so going to the doctor is a bit expensive. I'd rather avoid that if possible.

Also, in the photo, there is a pit in the middle of the bruise. I had chicken pox as a kid and I scratched one on my forehead till it bled. It left a scar that is very noticeable when I squint.
