Bruises and their causes
Also known as ecchymosis, a bruise is an injury that occurs when small blood vessels are damaged due to an impact. The most common symptoms of bruising include skin discoloration (red that will turn bluish-purplish or black), pain and tenderness, and swelling in the affected area.
The most common cause of bruises is physical trauma, like bumping your knee on a corner of a wooden chair or exercising too vigorously. These cause injuries to the small blood vessels inside your skin, making blood leak beneath the skin’s surface where it gets trapped.
You can also get bruises by taking blood thinners because they prevent blood from clotting, which is the clumping together of blood cells to create a jelly-like substance that will stop the bleeding. NSAIDs like ibuprofen, while not blood thinners, also reduce the ability of blood to clot. In addition, cancer treatments like chemotherapy decreases the number of platelets, which are disc-like parts of our blood that help prevent bleeding.
Bruises may take days or weeks to heal, depending on severity. As it progresses, you’ll notice a change in its color. At first, it has a reddish color due to the fresh blood that leaked from the vessels. Within a day or two, the blood loses oxygen, turning the color into blue, purple, or black. After about five to ten days, you’ll notice that the bruise becomes greenish or yellowish due to the by-products of blood breakdown called biliverdin (which gives the green color) and bilirubin (which gives the yellow color). As the bruise is in the final stages of healing, you’ll find the color changing to yellowish brown to light brown. Then, the bruise fades. But this process usually takes about 2 weeks.
Remedies to soothe and get rid of bruises faster
While most bruises due to injuries go away on their own usually after two weeks, there are ways to speed up its healing and alleviate pain.
1. Cold compress. Applying a cold compress, a bag of ice for example, to the affected area can help reduce swelling and relieve pain.
2. Elevating the affected area. Doing this can help reduce swelling in the bruised area.
3. OTC pain relievers. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with bruising. Following the recommended dosage is strongly advised.
4. Topical creams. Using topical creams like Soothing Juggernaut can help relieve pain, reduce inflammation and promote healing in the affected area.
5. Rest. Allowing time for healing and avoiding strenuous activities can help prevent more injury.
In some cases, bruises are a symptom of a serious injury or condition, like a bone fracture or internal bleeding. If you are experiencing severe pain and swelling on bruises that doesn’t improve within a few days, it’s imperative to seek medical attention to find out or rule out any serious underlying conditions.
