5 Tips on how to treat bruises

Recommend to others!

We all know what bruises are, how painful and unpleasant they are especially for women. No matter how careful we are it is impossible for us to keep or body away from bruising. Different accidents, traumatisms and even an intense pressure on our arms or legs can have as a result the occurrence of a big violet bruise.

Here are some tips on how to help your body remove faster that nasty-looking bruise:

1. If you have a simple bruise, with no other tissue lesions you can apply on that area a bandage soaked in comfrey tea. Keep it there for one hour. The tea is easy to prepare: ½ l of boiling water adding 30g of comfrey. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Do not drink the remaining tea after applying the bandage.

2. Every 3 hours apply marigold cream on the bruising zone. This will prevent an intense bruising from occurring.

3. Apply bandages made out from cabbage leaves. Wash the cabbage leaves and then smash them with a roller on a clean surface. Only then apply them on the bruising area. Change this natural bandage every 3 hours.

4. Sometimes if you are fast you can prevent a bruise from forming by applying a cold pack on that area, right after the injury was done.

5. Another solution would be applying on a towel apple cider vinegar mixed with water on the bruising tissue. You can reapply this mixture several times a day.

Even though these are great tips that heal bruises and sometimes even stop them from reaching large proportions, you must be realistic and understand that you will never be able to cure a bruise in just one day. Without any treatment, normally a bruise can cure in 7 to 10 days, depending on the intensity of the tissue’s trauma. Have patience and you will see that maybe in two or three days your bruised tissue will look at its best again.

Skin treatments have long been limited for different reasons, but now with the power of the internet and progression of technology, it is available to everyone.  Whether it’s microdermabrasion machines or another type of photo facial machine, the power is with the consumer these days

    I have a very bad bruise done to my thighbone,it caused my knee to swell which I brought down ith ice packs. Now though there is a lump on the outside of my thigh almost as though my muscle is constantly tightened, this is painful it brings tears to my eyes.I did go to an emergency room but they didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know ,they gave me vicodin for pain but it didn’t help. Iwas already taking ibuprofin for pain and swelling.Can anyone out there help or suggest anything else?By the way there is no visiable bruise!

  2. hi,
    i recently rode my bike without a saddle and used a tracksuit top above the seatpost for cushioning.
    i had no problems at the time but 2 days later i had a painful, hard lump on the fatty tissue of my bottom.
    can you suggest ways to ease the pain?

  3. Both my sister and girlfriend seemed to get bruised easily. I heard that it had alot to do with iron in their diet which increase their hemoglobin count. Anyways, I just wanted to say that this article really helped to point out some great ideas to treat bruises. Thanks!

  4. A bruise is a common skin injury that results in a discoloration of the skin. Blood from damaged blood vessels deep beneath the skin collects near the surface of the skin resulting in what we think of as a black and blue mark. Symptoms of bruising vary depending on the cause of the bruising. The bruise may be very small and may blend in with the texture of the skin, or it may be large, swollen, and painful.


  5. Oh bruises.. I hate it! Thank you for informing us about it though.

  6. Bruises are “painful and unpleasant especially for women”? Really? Because men are tough and women are weak, right?

  7. Don’t be silly. It’s a known fact that women bruise far more easily than men and bruises are unslightly when most women wear more revealing outfits.


  8. i have got bruise on my eye brow what do i do to cure it

  9. my mum does not know about it if she knows she will kill me cause i got hit by a pool stick n my eye my eye is hurting

  10. No Miriam, not because women are weak but because women tend to be more concerned with imperfections in their appearance. Way to look like a dope while overreacting.

  11. I should point out that the appearance of bruises bothers many women exactly as little as it bothers most men, ie not a lot. The article begins with a sweeping generalisation about women’s vanity which, aside from the added implication of weakness
    (perhaps being less inhibited about expressing suffering), could easily have been avoided at no loss to the content of the article. Women, like most groups of people, often find such generalisations frustrating. A more accurate statement would be ‘bruises are particularly unpleasant for people who are preoccupied with their appearance, excessively self-conscious and worry that they must always look flawless or risk suffering a loss in status/personal attractiveness if they display something as minor as a bruise’. I think that many women would like the opportunity not to be that person.
