Bruising

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Ok, to cut a long story short - I got into a fight on Saturday night down the pub. I now have really bad bruising to the right-hand-side of my forehead, and slight bruising to the left. :(

I am going to Ibiza on Friday, and don't really want to be covered in bruises in all the photos! So, is there anything I can put on it, or anything I can do to reduce the bruising.

This is probably a really stupid question, but any advice would be welcomed!

Thanks!

    An ice pack wrapped in a clean cloth may help to bring the swelling down a bit, don't put ice directly on your skin. Some people say Arnica cream helps too.

    My mum always used to use Comfrey cream on me when I was little for bruises. Might be worth a try. I've also heard that arnica cream can help as well. Hope you have a good holiday!
