Customer Question

I have had the same bruises for 5 years in my legs and longer than that on my shin. My doctor said the bruises on my leg where because of wearing tight socks. My orthopedic surgeon said the bruise on my shin after surgery was just what happens sometimes. Do you have an advice on causes or the possibility of making the bruises go away?

Thanks for the question.

I'm Dr Chaithanya, experienced General Physician attending you today.

What surgery have you undergone? Were you wearing tight socks before? Is your skin dry? what did you apply for bruises? hypertensive? diabetic? on what medications are you?

Hi, Vitamin C supplements and taking collagen supplements can have a definite positive effect in the healing of bruises.
