    BRUISES & BRUISING DESCRIPTION

    SOFT TISSUE TRAUMA

    A bruise, or a contusion, occurs when the soft tissues underlying the skin are injured. The small blood vessels, most often the capillaries tear or rupture, most often from an injury or fall. The skin is not broken, but blood collects under the skin, resulting in discoloration (black and blue marks). The discoloration that starts out red, then turns dark and bluish, and finally may become a yellowish color as the blood under the skin is absorbed. As the bruise heals (a simple bruise usually heals within 2 to 4 weeks), the discoloration fades.

    The severity of these closed soft tissue injuries varies greatly. A simple bruise heals quickly. In contrast, bruising and swelling following an injury may also be a sign of an underlying fracture that could take months to heal. Whenever you encounter a significant amount of swelling, pain and bruising within 30 minutes of an injury, suspect a more serious problem, such as the possibility of an underlying Fracture or severe Sprain.

    Sometimes, bruises spread down the body due to gravity. A leg bruise usually will take longer to heal than a bruise on the face or arms. Most bruises are not a cause for concern since they will go away on their own. Treatment at home can be done which may help speed healing and relieve the swelling and soreness that often accompany bruises caused by injury.

    Some people may bruise more easily than others. Sometimes you may not even remember bumping into something or having an injury of any kind. Bruising easily does not necessarily you have a serious health problem, especially if bruising is minimal and shows up only once in a while.

    It is common for older adults to bruise easily from minor injuries, especially injuries to the forearms, hands, legs, and feet. This is because the skin changes as people age. Most older adults bruise easily because, as a person ages, the skin becomes less flexible, thinner, and there is usually less fat under the skin. The cushioning effect of the skin decreases as the fat under the skin decreases. These changes, along with skin damage from exposure to the sun, cause blood vessels to break easily (increased fragility). When the blood vessels break, bruising occurs.

    Women tend to bruise from minor injuries - especially on the thighs, buttocks, and upper arms - more easily than men.

    Sometimes, an easy bruising tendency runs in families.

    People who do not eat enough fresh, uncooked foods to supply the body with needed nutrients are prone to easy bruising. Nutritional deficiencies, especially in vitamin C, or blood-clotting disorders can make the blood vessel walls very thin and delicate, causing them to rupture with even the slightest amount of pressure, such as leaning against a table or having someone grab you firmly with his or her hand. Unexplained or easy bruising can be related to heavy smoking or menstruation, or it can be an indication of an underlying health condition, including AIDS (AIDS-related bruises do not go away), allergies, anemia, cancer, hemophilia, infections, obesity, myelocytic leukemia, and abnormal platelet function caused by liver or kidney disorder.

    Occasionally after an injury, blood collects and pools under the skin creating a hematoma. This gives the skin a spongy, rubbery, lump-like feel. A regular bruise is more spread out and may not feel like a firm lump. A hematoma usually is not a cause for concern unless it occurs on the head after a head injury. It is not the same thing as a Blood Clot in a vein, and it does not cause blood clots.

    Sudden unexplained bruising or blood spots under the skin or a sudden increase in the frequency of bruising may mean you have an abnormal type of bruising:

  • PURPURA: Purpura is a sudden, severe, widespread bruising that occurs without an injury. People develop purpura often have signs of illness, such as a fever, weakness, fatigue, or a vague sense of being ill (called malaise). The bruising caused by purpura is different from the isolated bruises a person often gets after bumping into an object or falling. A bleeding or clotting disorder is the most common cause of purpura. Purpura that comes on quickly of a period of a few hours may be a sign of a serious infection that will require immediate medical attention and treatment.

  • PETECHIAE: Petechiae are tiny, flat red or purple spots in the skin or lining of the mouth caused by abnormal bleeding in small blood vessels that have broken close to the skin or the surface of a mucous membrane. Petechiae will appear rapidly over a matter of hours. The size of petechiae spots range from pinpoint to pinhead in size but may spread over a large area of the body. They are not the same as the tiny, flat red spots or birthmarks (called hemangiomas) that are present all the time. They do not itch like many rashes and the do not turn white (blanch) when they are pressed on. Petechiae that develop quickly over a short period of time may (a few hours) may mean the person has a serious infection or lack of blood platelets, which are a part of the body's defense against bleeding, that requires immediate medical attention and treatment.


  • PURPURA

    Purpura (from Latin: purpura, meaning "purple") are red or purple discolorations on the skin that do not blanch on applying pressure. They are caused by bleeding underneath the skin usually secondary to vasculitis or dietary deficiency of Vitamin C (known as scurvy). Purpura measure 0.3 to 1 cm (3 to 10 mm), whereas petechiae measure less than 3 mm, and ecchymoses greater than 1 cm.

    Purpura is common with typhus and can be present with meningitis caused by meningococci or septicaemia. In particular, meningococcus (Neisseria meningitidis), a Gram-negative diplococcus organism, releases endotoxin when it lyses. Endotoxin activates the Hageman factor (clotting factor XII), which causes disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). The DIC is what appears as a rash on the affected individual.

    CLASSIFICATION

    Purpura are a common and nonspecific medical sign; however, the underlying mechanism commonly involves one of:
  • Platelet disorders (thrombocytopenic purpura)
    • Primary thrombocytopenic purpura
    • Secondary thrombocytopenic purpura
    • Post-transfusion purpura
  • Vascular disorders (nonthrombocytopenic purpura)
    • Microvascular injury, as seen in senile (old age) purpura, when blood vessels are more easily damaged
    • Hypertensive states
    • Deficient vascular support
    • Vasculitis, as in the case of Henoch-Schonlein purpura
  • Coagulation Disorders
    • Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)
    • Scurvy (Vitamin C Deficiency) - Defect in collagen synthesis due to lack of hydroxylation of procollagen results in weakened capillary walls and cells
  • Meningococcemia
  • Cocaine use with concomitant use of the one-time chemotherapy drug and now veterinary deworming agent levamisole can cause purpura of the ears, face, trunk, or extremities, sometimes needing reconstructive surgery. Levamisole is purportedly a common cutting agent.
  • Decomposition of blood vessels including purpura is a symptom of acute radiation poisoning in excess of 2 Grays of radiation exposure. This is an uncommon cause in general, but is commonly seen in victims of nuclear disaster.

  • Cases of psychogenic purpura are also described in the medical literature, some claimed to be due to "autoerythrocyte sensitization". Other studies suggest the local (cutaneous) activity of tissue plasminogen activator can be increased in psychogenic purpura, leading to substantial amounts of localized plasmin activity, rapid degradation of fibrin clots, and resultant bleeding. Petechial rash is also characteristic of a rickettsial infection.

    purpura and petechiae comparisons


    PETECHIAE

    A petechia (plural petechiae) is a small (1 to 2 mm) red or purple spot on the skin, caused by a minor bleed (from broken capillary blood vessels). Petechia refers to one of the three descriptive types of bleeding into the skin differentiaed by size, the other two being purpura and ecchymosis (basically a bruise not necessarily caused by trauma). Petechiae are by defininition less than 3 mm in size. The term is almost always used in the plural, since a single lesion is seldom notices or significant.

    The most common cause of petechiae is through physical trauma such as a hard bout of coughing, holding breath, vomiting or crying, which can result in facial petechiae, especially around the eyes. Petechiae in this instance are harmless and usually disappear within a few days. Petechiae may be a sign of thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts) when platelet function is inhibited (e.g., as a side effect of medications or during certain infections), or in clotting factor deficiencies. They may also occur when excessive pressure is applied to tissue (e.g., when a tourniquet is applied to an extremity or with excessive coughing or vomiting).

    If unsure, petechiae should always be quickly investigated. They can be interpreted as vasculitis, an inflammation of the blood vessels, which requires immediate treatment to prevent permanent damage. Some malignancies can also cause petechiae to appear. Petechiae should be investigated by a health care provider to rule out the more dangerous conditions.

    The significance of petechiae in children depends on the clinical context in which they arise. Petechiae in children can occur with viral infections. In this instance, they do not necessarily signify a serious illness. However, they are a hallmark signal of some potentially serious illnesses, such as meningococcemia, leukemia, and certain causes of thrombocytopenia, of which meningococcemia can cause death within 48 hours of infection. Therefore, their presence should not be ignored. Petechiae (in the face) may also be present in cases of self asphyxiation.

    Infection causes include Babesiosis, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, Boutonneuse fever, Chikungunya, Cerebral malaria, Congenital syphilis, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Cytomegalovirus, Dengue fever, Dukes' disease, Ebola, Endocarditis, Influenza A virus subtype H1N1, Hantavirus, Infectious mononucleosis, Marburg virus, Neisseria meningitis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Scarlet fever, and Typhus.

    Non-infectious conditions include Hypocalcemia, Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Leukemia, Celiac Disease, Aplastic anemia, Scurvy, Lupus, Childhood protein-energy malnutrition such as Kwashiorkor or Marasmus, Erythroblastosis fetalis, Henoch-Schonlein purpura, Kawasaki disease, Schamberg's disease, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and Sjogren's Syndrome.

    Trauma includes Gua Sha, a Chinese treatment that scrapes the skin, High-G training, Hickey (injury), Asphyxiation (discussed below).

    Causes of particular types include Petechiae on the soft palate are mainly associated with streptococcal pharyngitis, and as such it is an uncommon but highly specific finding. Facial petechiae, especially around the eyes, indicate physical trauma such as by hard bouts of coughing, vomiting or crying.

    Forensics: Petechiae on the face and conjunctiva (eyes) can be a sign of a death by asphyxiation, particularly when involving reduced venous return from the head (such as in strangulation). Petechiae are thought to result from an increase of pressure in the veins of the head and hypoxic damage to endothelia of blood vessels.

    Petechiae can be used by police investigators in determining if strangulation has been part of an attack. The documentation of the presence of petechiae on a victim can help police investigators prove the case. Petechiae resulting from strangulation can be relatively tiny and light in color to very bright and pronounced. Petechiae may be seen on the face, in the whites of the eyes or on the inside of the eyelids.

    BRUISING FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

    COMMON APPEARANCE

  • Pain.
  • Swelling.
  • Discoloration that starts out red, then turns dark and bluish, reddish-blue, and finally may become a yellowish or a yellowish-green color as the blood under the skin is absorbed.

  • Bruise aging by color





    BRUISING CAUSES

    A VARIETY OF CAUSES

  • Injuries are the most common cause of bruising. Body parts often become bruised after banging into hard objects; this is normal.
  • Certain medications (anti coagulants and blood thinners) may make people more prone to bruising.
  • Illness or nutritional deficiencies can make people more prone to bruising.





  • BRUISING RISK FACTORS

    RISK INCREASES WITH

  • Heavy smoking.
  • Anti-clotting (anti-coagulants) medications.
  • Bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia.
  • Menstruation.
  • Anemia.
  • Cancer, an early sign.
  • Leukemia.
  • Overweight (obesity).

  • Vitamin C deficiency.

  • Malnutrition.

  • People who do not eat enough fresh, uncooked foods to supply the body with needed nutrients are prone to easy bruising.





  • BRUISING PREVENTION

    PREVENTIVE MEASURES

  • Do not smoke cigarettes. Smoking decreases nutrient levels in your body resulting in deficiencies, increases oxidation of cells by free radicals and weakens capillary walls.

  • If you tend to bruise frequently, avoid taking ibuprofen and aspirin, which thin the blood and reduce the ability to clot.

  • Eat a healthy diet. Be sure to consume enough Vitamin C and Iron in your diet. Eat a diet rich in Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and K, and Bioflavonoids. Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and so on.

  • Take appropriate nutritional supplements (as indicated below) to treat nutritional deficiencies in your diet.

  • Avoid situations where accidents and injuries may happen. Trauma is the number one cause of bruising.

  • Have your medication levels checked by your health care provider. You may be able to take less medication if you are on blood thinning or anti-clotting medications. If you have a bleeding disorder, you may need to have your medication increased.


  • citrus fruits and vitamin C

    THE IMPORTANCE OF NUTRIENTS


    Vitamin deficiencies may be a cause of frequent bruising. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids are especially crucial. They build tissue around the blood vessels, strengthen capillary walls and supply oxygen to injured cells. Vitamin K helps to promote blood clotting; vitamins B and D help to protect the skin tissue.





    BRUISING TREATMENT

    FIRST AID RECOMMENDATIONS

    The following first aid measures may help decrease pain and swelling and promote healing of bruises caused by injuries. For the first 24 to 48 hours after an injury follow R.I.C.E. Guidelines:
    • REST: If you have sustained a bruise, it is important to stop what you are doing and rest in order to reduce the blood flow to the tissue and keep the bruising and swelling to a minimum.

    • ICE: To minimize bruising, as soon as possible after an injury, apply ice or cold packs to your bruised area for 15 to 30 minutes. This stops the bleeding by constricting the blood vessels. If the bruise is severe, you may wish to further treat the injured area with an ice pack every 2 to 3 waking hours for a 24 to 48 hours, and then switch to 15 minutes of heat 3 times per day. Ice helps to relieve pain and reduce swelling and inflammation. Keep a thin cloth (damp or dry) between your skin and the cold pack. Do not fall asleep with ice on your skin.

    • COMPRESSION: Compression using elastic bandages to compress blood vessels and tissue to reduce bleeding and relieve pain. If there are no broken bones or open wounds, apply a bandage to the affected area. Wrapping the bruised area with an elastic bandage might prevent vessels from leaking as much blood and minimize the severity of swelling. Remove or loosen the wrap if you develop signs that it is too tight, such as numbness, tingling, increased pain, swelling, or cool skin below the wrap.

    • ELEVATION: The injured area should also be elevated above the heart level, if possible to allow blood to flow away from the injured area and minimize the bruise. If your bruise is on an arm or leg, try elevating the bruised area higher than your heart. You can set a hand, foot, arm, or leg on pillows while you apply ice and any time you sit or lie down. This will help to keep swelling to a minimum and may help prevent the bruise from moving down your arm or leg.
    After the first 48 hours, apply a warm washcloth to your bruise for 10 minutes, 3 times a day. This will help blood blow to the area and speed up healing.

    MAKING OR OBTAINING AN ICE PACK

  • You can make an ice pack by filling a plastic bag with ice cubes and then wrapping a damp towel around it. Make a cold compress by soaking a cloth in cold water. Or you can buy ice packs that contain special gels and keep them in the freezer. Do not cover the ice pack with an extra towel, since it will create insulation and reduce the cooling effect.

  • If you have a bruise in an area of the body that requires a moldable ice pack, fill a plastic bag or a rubber surgical glove with a solution of 2 parts water and 1 part rubbing alcohol and put it in the freezer. The bag will be pliable and conform to your body, and it will not "sweat" like most ice packs do. This would be an ideal ice pack for a black eye. Another excellent moldable ice pack for the eye, or any other injured area, is a bag of frozen peas. They conform to any injured area and can be used over and over again. Be sure to set the bag of peas aside for use as an ice pack only; you should not consume the peas after they have been thawed and refrozen. You can take a permanent marker and write "Ice Pack" across the bag to keep it separate from your other bags of frozen vegetables.

  • OTHER HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS

  • Witch Hazel, an astringent herb often used in the treatment of varicose veins, may help heal damaged veins. An ointment made from witch hazel leaves can be applied to the skin to treat bruises and cuts. It may help tighten stretched (distended) veins and restore vessel tone, decrease inflammation, and decrease bleeding. Witch Hazel is recommended for external use only. Do not a take it by mouth (internally). It can cause nausea, vomiting, constipation and, possibly fecal impactions.

  • Rub a sterile cotton ball soaked with distilled Witch Hazel on the injury to stop the swelling.

  • To reduce discoloration and soreness, try applying shredded raw Potato directly to the injury for about an hour.

  • The leaves of the Arnica plant may be used in an ointment and can be applied to the skin to treat bruises. It may improve healing by decreasing swelling, decreasing pain, and speed up blood reabsorption. Arnica is recommended for external use only. Do not put arnica inside your mouth or swallow it. The plant can be poisonous, and if swallowed, it can cause stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, difficulty breathing, cardiac arrest, and death. Stop using arnica if a skin rash develops.

  • Avoid activities that might increase swelling such as taking hot showers, using hot tubs, hot packs, and drinking alcohol. During the first 48 hours, these things may actually increase bruising and swelling. Stop smoking since smoking may delay healing because it interferes with blood supply and collagen metabolism.

  • To reduce the pain, swelling, and discoloration of a black eye, immediately apply cold compresses and an ice pack to the injury. Unfortunately, if the discoloration has set in before the ice bag has been applied, there will be little hope of lightening the bruise.

  • Bruising that is accompanied by swollen and/or bleeding gums can be an indication of a deficiency in Vitamin C, Folic Acid, or Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2).

  • Studies show that people with Vitamin C deficiencies bruise more easily than others, probably because their blood vessels are generally weaker. Increase your vitamin C intake as outlined under Nutrient Supplements. Other studies have shown that Vitamin C can actually reduce the time it takes for the discoloration to fade.

  • If you want to hide a bruise while it is healing, consult a cosmetic counter in a major department store. Since bruises are often blue and red, applying yellow-tinted cover-up makeup may give the bruise a more neutral appearance.


  • Extra Tip - To accelerate the healing process, take at least 5,000 mg of vitamin C at the first sign of a bruise. Studies show that people with vitamin C deficiency bruise more easily because their blood vessels are weaker. Vitamins A and E also help to heal bruises.


    MEDICATIONS & PROCEDURES

  • If you need a pain medication, try a non-prescription medication such as acetaminophen (Tylenol or Panadol).

  • Do not use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the first 24 hours after an injury that caused a bruise. NSAIDs may prolong bleeding under the skin and make bruising worse. Avoid aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin), naproxen (Aleve or Naprosyn), ketoprofen (Actron or Orudis) for pain, as these can worsen the discoloration due to their blood-thinning qualities. Do not use aspirin for the first 24 hours after an injury that caused a bruise. Aspirin may prolong bleeding under the skin and make bruising worse.

  • Do not exceed, the maximum recommended doses. Carefully read and follow all labels on the medication bottle and box. If have been told to avoid NSAIDs medications, consult with your health care provider. Do not give aspirin to anyone under age 20 unless directed to do so by your health care provider. If you are pregnant, consult with your midwife or health care provider before taking any medication.

  • If bruising is frequent, consult with your health care provider. Check for blood clotting disorders, anemia, or nutriitonal deficiencies. Review your diet and make appropriate changes. Finding the underlying cause can help in deciding which treatment therapy will be the best.


    ACTIVITY RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Exercise is important; it helps one to breathe more efficiently and to tolerate daily activities.

  • EXPECTED OUTCOME - THE PROGNOSIS

  • Full recovery after healing for most simple bruisings.

  • Herbal salves and compresses can accelerate healing. For simple bruises without broken bones or other injuries, follow the RICE guidelines: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.

  • POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

  • Early sign of illness. If bruising occurs repeatedly without any known cause, consult with your health care provider.
  • Hematoma or continued bleeding without clotting.





  • DIET & NUTRITION RECOMMENDATIONS

    REVIEW YOUR DIET

  • Eat a diet of fresh, uncooked foods. People who do not get enough of these can be prone to bruising.

  • Eat an abundance of dark green leafy vegetables, Buckwheat, and fresh fruits. These foods are high in Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids, which help prevent bruising. Dark Leafy Greens such as Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Kale, Spinach, Barley Grass, Wheatgrass, and Spirulina are also good sources of Vitamin K, which is necessary for blood clotting and healing.

  • Eat plenty of products rich in Zinc, such as chicken, eggs, Soybeans, and Wheat Germ. Zinc is important for strengthening blood vessel walls and aids in blood clotting.

  • Include Garlic and Onions in your diet. These foods contain Quercetin and Mustard oils, which have been shown to inhibit lipoxygenase, an enzyme that aids in releasing an inflammatory chemical in the body. Garlic is also a natural antibiotic.

  • Try taking Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids if you find you are bruising very easily, as a deficiency in these often causes easy or unexplained bruising.

  • Drink plenty of fluids. Pure water, herbal teas, and soups are all good choices.

  • Avoid mucus-forming foods such as dairy products, processed foods, sugar, sweet fruits, and white flour; also avoid gas-producing foods such as beans, cabbage, cauliflower, and so on. A vegetarian diet is best.


  • NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

    HERBAL RECOMMENDATIONS

    HELPFUL HERBS

  • Crush Plantain leaves and squeeze out the juice. Apply the extract directly to the sting. Within 30 minutes the pain and swelling should be greatly reduced. Make a plantain poultice by crushing and mashing fresh leaves by hand, using a mortar and pestle, food processor or in a blender with just enough water to turn them into a mushy pulp. Apply the mushy leaved directly on the wound area and wrap with gauze. Keep it there for at least 30 minutes, but can be left on longer (overnight), if desired. This is good for all kinds of wounds, bruising, stings, blood blisters and skin sores and irritations. Fresh Comfrey leaves can also be added with Plantain to make a beneficial poultice. Replace old herbal poultice mash with freshly made as needed to help speed healing.

  • Freshly picked Comfrey leaves, smashed into a pulp using a pestle and mortar, and applied to the fresh bruise as a poultice then wrapped with a gauze wrap will help rapid healing. Fresh Plantain leaves (a common garden weed), smashed into a pulp using a pestle and mortar, can also be applied to a fresh bruise as a poultice. Both of these herbs, when used together, have great healing properties, often reducing or preventing bruising from a fresh injury when applied immediately after the injury occurs.


  • COMFREY SALVE

    1/4 cup of Lanolin
    2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
    4 teaspoons of Comfrey Tincture or Powder

    Mix together and apply to bruises 3 to 4 times daily.

    comfrey salve


  • Alfalfa supplies beneficial minerals and vitamin K which is needed for healing. Take it in liquid or tablet form as directed on the product label.

  • Cornflower, Buchu, and Comfrey Root have all been known to reduce the swelling, pain, and discoloration of bruising in some people. Make a tea from them and place a terry cloth towel that has been soaked in the tea over the bruised area for 20 minutes at a time, 2 or 3 times daily.

  • An ointment made by adding 1 part ground Cayenne Pepper to 5 parts melted base (such as Vaseline or a natural Herbal Butter). The Cayenne and Vaseline mixture has been used successfully in China and Taiwan for treating bruises. Mix the combination well and cool. Apply it once every 1 or 2 days.

  • Arnica Tincture can be made by pouring 2 cups of 100 to 140 proof alcohol (vodka works well) over 1/4 cup of Arnica blossoms and steep for 10 to 12 days, shaking daily. Strain and store in a dark bottle. Dilute 1 tablespoon of tincture to 4 tablespoons of water, soak a cloth in it and apply to bruises 3 times daily. Commercially prepared Arnica Tincture is available for purchase (see link above).

    CALENDULA COMPRESS


    Pour 1 cup of boiling water over Calendula Flowers, steep 15 minutes, strain and cool. Soak a clean cloth in the mixture, and place it on affected areas 3 to 4 times daily with clean cloths.

  • Witch Hazel compress. Moisten a clean cloth using several drops of Witch Hazel Extract or Witch Hazel Tea and apply it to the bruise several times daily.

  • Dandelion and Yellow Dock are good sources of iron.

  • Oregano Essential Oil, applied topically, has had some positive effects on healing bruises.

  • Fresh Parsley leaves, crushed and applied directly to the bruise, are known to ease discoloration within a few days.

  • Wild Pansy (Violet; Viola tricolor) can be applied externally to treat a bruise.

  • Other beneficial herbs include Bilberry, Black Walnut, Garlic extract, Horsetail, and Rose Hips (which are very high in vitamin C).

    HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

    Consult a homeopathic practitioner for therapeutic dosages.

  • Arnica Montana is used for bruises, especially those around the eyes, that are painful and have a bluish red discoloration.
  • Ruta Graveolens for bruises to the membranes that cover bones, such as the kneecap.
  • Ledum for painful, swollen bruises that feel cold and numb to the touch.
  • Hypericum for bruises with broken skin.

  • ESSENTIAL OILS

  • The essential oils of Yarrow, Helichrysum, Lavender and Hyssop accelerate healing and help reduce inflammation. Soak a clean cloth in cool water, and apply 4 drops of one of the essential oils. Put the compress on the bruise for 10 minutes, 1 to 2 times daily.

  • A Bumps & Bruises Wellness Oil can be made with a blend of Grapeseed Oil and Lavender Essential Oil, Germanium Essential Oil, and Black Pepper Essential Oil. When massaged into the skin or held onto the injury with a cloth, this oil blend will help reduce swelling and bruising. The swelling and unsightly bruising that comes after a bump or fall can almost be worse than the pain of the original impact. When moments like this happen - and we all have them - it is important to act relatively quickly. The sooner you address bruising and swelling, the shorter the duration will be. You can also speed up the healing process by applying ice to the bruise. This oil is a great one to have stored in the medicine cabinet, as bumps happen all the time - it is great to have a natural treatment at the ready!





  • NOTIFY YOUR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER

  • A black eye is actually a bruise in the cheek, eyebrow, and/or eyelid area. An impact hard enough to cause a black eye can also cause damage to the eye itself. If your eye has swollen shut, it should not be forced open or pressed on in any way. Blurry vision or seeing double should prompt you to see an ophthalmologist, who may prescribe an antibiotic and/or an eye patch to protect the eye while healing.

  • If your bruise does not heal within a week, or your bruise lasts longer than 4 weeks, you will want to have your health care provider examine it.

  • Some people can bruise as a result of taking medications that can interfere with normal blood clotting, including local anesthetics, prescription anticoagulants, antidepressants, antihistamines, aspirin, cortisone, and penicillin. If you are taking any of these medications and find that bruises are appearing without any reason, you should contact your health care provider, who may change or discontinue your medication.

  • If you have bruising underneath the fingernails, this may be an early indication of skin melanoma. Consult with your health care provider.

  • You develop signs of skin infection. Infection can develop after an injury or wound to the skin or mucous membranes. Signs of infection may include: increased pain, swelling, redness, or warmth around the affected area. Red streaks extending from the affected area. Drainage of pus from the area. Swollen lymph nodes in the neck, armpit, or groin. Fever of 100°F (37.78°C) or higher, or chills with no other known cause. Keep the area clean and do not scratch it to reduce the risk of infection.

  • If you experience tenderness and bruising of the perineal region as a result of childbirth, consult with your midwife about remedies to help soothe and heal your pelvic floor.
