Warm compresses: Warm compresses and "tincture of time" are the only effective bruise treatments. More important is identifying their cause, unless it is obvious (i.e. An injury). Make sure the bruised person isn't being abused, or isn't developing bruises spontaneously, for no obvious reason. Such people need to be examined by a doctor.
