Customer Question
I may have sent...

I may have sent this earlier so apologize if I did so. I hit my eyebrow on a shelf several days ago. The bone along there is okay except a lot sensitive when touched. I had bleeding in the right corner which I presume was a small blood vessel. I used an ice pack every twenty minutes during the day. Today the whole eye area has the blood spread around and I would appreciate knowing if it will heal on its own. This happened on Wednesday. Thank you so much.

Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually usually it can take upto 2 weeks for the bruising in the area to completely disappear, the important point is that if the swelling is settling down and the bruising is NOT spreading any further and your vision is not affected whatsoever then you can safely wait for this to disappear over time. You can continue to apply warm compresses on the area which helps in the reabsorption of the static blood inside the tissues which is causing the bruising.

Also if you have a picture that you can attach here, that will give me a better idea as to the best course of action here. Ill be awaiting your response.
