In daily life, bruises are extremely common and unavoidable. It is due to an impact, injury or painful bump. Here are some suggested tips for quickly removing bruises.
Ice the bruise
Icing your bruise is the very first step toward healing it because less blood will leak into the surrounding tissue when you cool the blood vessels around the bruised area. Bruise treatment by ice has been known for a very long time, especially with those who play sports.
Method is very simple. Ice your bruise for about 15 minutes every few hours for the first few days after incurring a bruise. Icing reduces inflammation and swelling. It helps the bruise heal quickly.
Apply a warm compress
After reducing inflammation with ice, you can apply a warm compress (not hot) directly to the bruise. This heat opens up blood vessels, which increases blood flow and supplies oxygen and nutrients to reduce pain in joints and relax sore muscles, ligaments, and tendons. As a result, the healing process will be sped up.
This heat method is more common for children and the elder because this group easily gets hypothermia if we use ice.
Crush aloe vera and parsley leaves
You should know that aloe vera and parsley work very well for fast healing, quickly removing the bruise and reducing inflammation.
What you should do is to crush some fresh parsley or aloe vera leaves, and then spread them directly on the bruise. It can promote healing and clear up black-and-blue marks within a day or so. Hold the leaves in place with a bandage or with a tape.
Roll the egg
It sounds unbelievable but egg we eat every day is very helpful for pain relief and bruise removal.
Boil an egg until it’s hard, the yolk shouldn’t be runny.
Crack the egg open, slice it and remove the yolk.
Wrap the egg along with a silver ring in a light handkerchief or napkin. Do this quickly so the egg is still warm, a cold egg will not help.
Apply the cloth covered egg to the bruise and rub until the egg has cooled. Do this a few times a day until the bruise is gone.
All the above methods are very effective. You just choose a useful measure for yourself.
