Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I am online and available to help you.
Are you available to chat?
yes thank u
I would expect that all the bruising has resolved by now.
yes only a dark circle remains around my eye
Is this grey shadow area have some looseness/bagging of the skin associated with it?
no just discoloration
Ok. Just so I understand....the skin in normal in all respects other then a slight grey tinge? Is this correct?
ok. That is good news... you probably didn't tear your orbital septum then :)
that's good news
What probably has happened is that the break down products from the bruise have stained the tissue just under your skin. This change in color will, in the vast majority of cases, resolve with time --- how much time, you might ask?
It can take up to 6 months :(
yes I thought in 2 months it would return to it's normal color. Oh well guess I have to wait so topical agents will not help?
But, I have been told by my "makeup consultant" (AKA: wife) that yellow tinged makeup, with MAC brand being the best per my consultant, work very well to cover up skin color change you are experiencing.
Of course, with time, your body should clear this up on it's own...so don't buy a ton of this makeup :)
No. None of those magical agents you read about on the internet will work.....they will, however, make your wallet lighter ;)
You just need to give it time......
thank you for the advice, funny thing all my life I've never worn make up and my complexion is flawless too bad I'm made to wear it because of injury.
Ya....but think how much harder this would be for a guy!
I'm happy I could be of assistance. Have a good weekend.
