    Default Odd question but anyway...

    Does anyone have any idea of anything that would help bruises go away faster? Is there a magic bruise be gone cream out there?
    I'm going to a hens do on Saturday that is a cocktail dress thing and because I'm on aspirin and a klutz I have some rather impressive bruises on my calves. I don't know if stockings would go with the dress and I was wondering if fake tan would cover them at all? Help hubbers?

    There is a cream called hirudoid (or something like that) that I have been given by the Red Cross when they have mucked up my blood donation and think I'll bruise. I'm sure you could get it at the chemist.

    As above there is a cream at the chemist. And fake tan does help cover it up a little. Try Bondi Sands or if it not available there is a Rimmel one that has been raved about a little.

    There is hirudoid cream that is meant to help the healing process but I can't speak as to whether it actually works or not.

    Fake tan does help, it's not obvious unless looking close up. Or stockings will definitely hide it. I can completely relate I bruise very easily on my legs and I'm a klutz too- my record is 29 bruises on my legs at once and it makes me look like a junkie or something lol

    Hirudoid or arnica cream also works well. Depending on where the bruises are, regular brushing (breaking up of the blood there) can help with with either method....my years as a Pharmacy chick totally helped me through my young hickey days lol

    I use lasonil on existing bruises and arnica when the area first gets hurt and I think a bruise may come. I find arnica doesn't work as well on me once the bruise is up

    Have you tried arnica pustules? I took them to help with healing after my caesareans and they seemed to really help me heal quicker. I wasn't so much thinking about this bruise just generally some of your treatments xx
