Here is a quick and easy ways to soothe the bruise. When we have an injury to the skin, a shade of purple and blue will usually appear on that area. It’s called a bruise-a sign of injury under our skin wherein there are broken blood vessel usually from a bump, a fall or a blow.

There are other causes of bruising though and if it’s something that has occurred without some physical injury, get help from a physician because it may be pathological in nature.

But for everyday bruising, there are a lot of alternative natural remedies that will surely keep away those nasty bruises. You can get arnica cream from any CVS Pharmacy. It’s fabulous for bruises with intact skin but never use it with broken skin since its harmful when taken internally.

A few times a day, spread arnica cream to the affected area and it will magically take the pain away, and will stop the bruise from forming.

Bromelain has also been known to be a good remedy for bruising. It will digest fibrin which is a by product of a bruise that usually cause swelling and inflammation.

This protein digesting enzyme is found in pineapples. But sadly though, eating a lot of pineapple won’t remove the bruises. Instead, try to look for bromelain supplements.

Take 250 to 500 milligrams in tablet or capsule form between meals until the bruising and inflammation subsides. Another traditional relief for bruises is the cold and hot water towel trick.

Wring out a towel in a hot water, not too much heat to produce more injury, Just enough warmth. Put on the injured area for 3 minutes. Next put the cold towel over the same for 30 seconds.

The warm water will bring blood to the area and the cold water will take it away. A series of this alternate pumping action will  bring fresh nutrients to the bruise and removes wastes products.
