Bruises That Turn Yellow?
, if the purple bruises turn yellow, what does that mean? Thank you
Hi, thanks for the question.
Bruises or bruises are lesions on the skin caused by rupture of blood vessels after invasive actions such as taking blood or due to collisions / blows that cause blood to come out of blood vessels, causing discoloration of the skin. Initially red color that occurs 1-2 days after injury, then blue, purple, or even black after a few days, and then turns yellow or green about 5-10 days, and then becomes light brown in 10-14 days, which over time will disappear. This condition is generally harmless and can heal on its own. To speed healing, we recommend:
Cold compress with ice water or ice on the bruised part for 10-15 minutes, 3-4 times a day.
Warm compresses on bruising after 48 hours bruising occur
Avoid heavy activity on bruised areas, such as heavy lifting for several days after bruising occurs
Perform a healthy lifestyle to speed up the healing process.
Thus, hopefully useful.
