How to speed up healing bruises
There are many ways to speed up healing bruise. Here we will talk about five ways.
Put the ice bag on the skin near the elbow
Applying an ice pack to the scuffed skin promotes healing.
People may want to try to speed up healing or alleviate any pain associated with bruising. They can try some potential family methods as follows:
Using ice packs
The first step in helping bruises heal is to apply ice to the area. One can use any frozen stuff to freeze the area, such as a frozen pack or a bag of frozen vegetables.
Wrap the cold with a towel or cloth and apply it to the affected area. Do not apply a cold compress to your skin as this will cause further damage.
When a person applies ice to a new bruise, it helps to slow down the bleeding and reduce swelling. This can reduce the overall size of the bruise as it prevents further leakage of blood and reduces inflammation.
Use healing cream
Many people use arnica, quercetin, vitamin B-3 or vitamin K cream to help speed up the healing time of bruises.
People can also use over-the-counter painkillers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to alleviate pain and inflammation around the bruises. Avoid taking aspirin because it can increase bleeding.
Avoiding the use of NSAIDs is also necessary when there is a bruise or extensive bruise after surgery, as these medications may worsen the bleeding. If you have this type of bruise, people should consult their doctor before taking any NSAID.
Use a soft, elastic wrap during the waking hours to help reduce bruises and discomfort after injury in the first 1-2 days.
The package should be strong but not tight. An increase in numbness, tingling or discomfort means that the package should be loosened or removed.
Lift the affected area
The effect of raising the bruise area is similar to that of contusion. It helps to prevent bruises from getting bigger. Individuals should upgrade the affected area to a comfortable location.
