This is Dr. David

everyone heals from bruises at different rates

some bruises heal up in a few days, some take several weeks to months to heal up.

your body has to remove the bruised blood in your skin cell by cell to remove the bruise

so it can take time.

putting ice on the area can help decrease swelling.

taking blood thinners like aspirin or coumadin can cause the bruise to take longer to heal.

older patients take longer to heal bruises than younger patients.
