Is there any way to lessen the pain from a bruise? I just got a guitar and im having a lot of fun with it but the strings are bruising my fingers

In brief: Time

I am assuming it is the hand on the frets you are talking about.
As you play more you will develope callus on the tips of the fingers and this will not bother you any more.
