Unfortunately, we’ve all experienced a time where we were injured. Usually not too long after injuring ourselves we notice a bruise start to form. A bruise, or contusion, appears on the skin after a trauma. The injury causes tiny blood vessels called capillaries to burst.
Blood gets trapped below the skin’s surface, which causes a bruise. Bruising usually fades away in about two weeks. Over that time, the bruise changes color as the body breaks down and reabsorbs the blood. The first stage of bruising will show a pink and reddened area immediately after trauma.
The second stage of bruising will show blue and dark purple, Third and fourth stage will include a pale green to yellow and brown discoloration of the skin. Treatment for bruising consists of ice therapy, heat, compression, elevation, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and Aloe Vera.
