Remedies, treatments and care for Bruises
Contusions, a.k.a. bruises are familiar signs of injuries to soft tissue. The damage generally occurs beneath unbroken skin, and is seen through skin tissue, which is translucent. At first, a bruise appears as a tender bump on the skin that is red or purplish in color. After a few days, the area turns black and blue and about a week later, it often looks yellow or greenish before it fades to light brown and then disappears. Most bruises heal in about two weeks without treatment. Bruising easily, or even spontaneously without trauma, could signify a medical problem that needs attention.
