In brief: Bruised Foot

Bruising is blood that has leaked into the skin.
Slowly the body will 'absorb' this and it will change colors from purple, to green to yellow. It may take up to 4 weeks for this to go away or more. Warm compresses can sometimes help this process speed up a bit.

In brief: Weeks

A broken foot can stay bruised for 4-6 weeks after a fracture, on average.
Sometimes the bruising goes away more quickly, sometimes it takes even longer.
