What is the best way to get rid on a bruise on my face? Had a family problem

It will heal; cover: Sorry to hear of your trouble within the family--i certainly hope it was an isolated incidence/accident. Minor bruising will likely heal completely without trouble, but will need time. Bruising appearance may worsen over 2-3 days, then should slowly improve. Make-up cover is easiest/fastest way to hide it until resolved. Consult doc if headache/vision trouble occur. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 32 y/o Black, very fair-skinned female and I often get bruises on mylegs for no reason. They last for weeks. Is there anyway to get rid of them?

Cause?: You are taking the wrong approach. I am not worried about the brusing but the cause. You want to know why this is happening and not worry about getting rid of them. You need to see your PCP and consider to see a hematologist. IN the meantime how much aspirin or advil (ibuprofen) are you taking.? The cause not the bruise are the most important.
Best wishes. ...Read more

How do I get rid of a bruise I have on my toe nail?

How do I get rid of a bruise I have on my toe nail?

Under the nail: If the "bruise" is under the toe nail, it will continue to move out as the nail growns out. In toenails, this can be as long as a year.

Most likely, it is a pocket of blood that got caught under the nail during trauma to the area. If it is a large area and causing pain, sometimes it can be drained to remove most of the blood. The damaged area still needs to grow out. ...Read more

I pinched my thumb and I have a bruise under my thumbnail-how can I get rid of the ugly black and blue bruise?

Good News I think: Generally, unless there was signficant damage to the nail-bed, the bruising you see, should gradually go away, but it is a very slow process for the old blood to get broken down by the body's defenses. If the problem is persistent, go see your doctor. The good news is that, in most cases, such injuries do heal without medical intervention. ...Read more
