Bruises can sometimes be extremely painful and if you happen to have one on the face or other visible areas it can give someone the impression you may have been subjected to some type of physical abuse.
A bruise is actually blood which rises to the surface of the skin when a blood vessel in that particular area breaks when hit or knocked.
Eating foods rich in Vitamin K have been found to treat bruises quickly. Applying something cold on the bruise such as an ice pack has also been proven to help. If there’s swelling heating the area with a soft warm washcloth for a few minutes has been known to also help bring relief.
