Put a heating pad on it for 15 min intervals and then do deep massage on it with vitamin e lotion. this helps break up the blood clots and allow them to absorb back into the skin. I had that happen to me and I had the bruising almost completely gone in about a week. The more you massage it the better.


it's actually pretty easy to bust veins, it used to happen to me all the time, if they're fragile or mess with them too much they'll bust

Ah, they have done that to me as well. The bruise was about 20 cm long, they went through both sides of my vein though.

So? The bruises will fade. I had big bruises on both my arms after surgery due to all the daily blood tests, it'll fade in a week or two.

Yeah that sucks, doesn't it? It happened to me like six months ago! The swelling lasts about 3 days. Expect to have that gnarly bruise for at least a month, though. And at least the weather is starting to cool down, so you can wear sleeves to hide it.


He's from Victoria, the weather will be starting to warm up shortly not cool down, winter is just finishing


#24 Yes, I'm just a regular Captain Obvious. Sorry about that. I was going to post a story about a bad experience a friend had to make it more relevant, but now you've got me all embarrassed.


Aw nerds. :[ Here, I'll go first: Something similar happened to me after surgery, but it was morphine and Benadryl pooling in there instead of blood. That shit stung like mad! OK, now you go. ;)
