It will take time for these vessels to heal and time for your body to clear the area of the leaked blood cells. You can use makeup to cover it like a black eye or a blemish, but it will take some days to resolve. ...Read more

For a head bruise/contusion, how many hours after the injury can I apply heat? How many times & how many minutes each time? Use heat for how many days?

The heat increases blood supply and breaks down blood clots under skin and promotes healing. Wrap the ice and the hot packs in a towel when applying. Discontinue the warm applications when soreness improves which is usually after several day. ...Read more
