Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

At this point I would stop the ice as this may slow down your bodies process of "vacuuming" up the blood particles that make up the bruise. Warm compresses will help to speed things up a bit if you so desire.

Dr. Rick :

The good news? This area of residual bruising will clear up in the near future.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
