An Excellent Home Remedy For Bruises
If you hit, and you are prone to bruises and hematomas, these tips are the right solution for you.
In this cases you should put cold compresses to the sore spot and hold them for about half an hour. Ice can be very useful. However you must be careful when using ice, you should hold the ice to the sore spot for about 5 minutes and then take a few minute break in order to avoid tingling tissue.
Ice is great because except that it soothes the pain and slows down the blood circulation, it also prevents the formation of hematomas. After half an hour of the treatment with ice, you need to apply a marigold based cream on the sore spot. If the hematoma is already created, a better solution would be warm compresses and a gentle massage on the sore spot.
In this way the hematoma will soon be resorbed. Also a very effective method is the one where you apply a slice of fresh pineapple on the sore spot. This method is effective because the pineapple contains ferment that accelerates the absorption of hematoma. Also a potato can be used for the same purpose. For this method first you need to boil the potatoes, then peel their skin and make a mash potatoes. Then you should add a little honey and plain water in this mixture. Finally apply this mixture on the bruises.
Another option is coating the sore spot with gauze soaked in vinegar. In order for this treatment to work you need to repeat it several times during the day.
