 Throughout our lives, many of us will experience many injuries

Bruise! 😖 

A bruise forms when a blow breaks small blood vessels near the surface of the skin, releasing a small amount of blood under the skin. Trapped blood appears as black and blue marks. Sometimes there are small red dots or red spots. If the skin is not broken, no bandage is needed. Easy bruising isn't just limited to older people, but as you age, you may become more prone to injury.

Despite the appearance,

it's usually nothing to worry about. However, occasionally it can be a sign of an underlying health problem that warrants medical attention. 🩹

A wound will go through almost all the colors of the rainbow before it ends. A change in color means your body is metabolizing or breaking down blood cells in the skin. This is a chemical process that helps your body heal itself. 🌈

Imagine you've been hit in the leg with a baseball. Ouch! Your body will go through the following stages. At first, you'll probably have a bump that may look red or purple and tender. Blood pooling under the tissue can cause the bump to swell. After a few days, the bruise will appear blue or even black. After five or ten days, it may appear green or even yellow. After 10 to 14 days, the color of the lesion will turn light brown, then become lighter and lighter as it fades. 🦠💚💛

To help speed up the wound healing process, it is very important to use ice within the first 24 to 36 hours. Applying ice for 15 to 20 minutes several times during the first day and a half will help speed recovery. After the first 36 hours, you can now start using moist heat. The moist heat will bring more blood circulation to the area, which will help speed up the healing process, taking time to release. Vitamin C would also be an excellent aid. ❄️🔥💊

OK, now you have the facts. So if you hurt yourself in the future, you'll know exactly what to do because a little knowledge can go a long way. 🤓👍
