Bruises

Back to First Aid

BruisesBruises are injuries to the soft tissue caused by the breaking of blood vessels near the skin's surface. The small amount of blood leaking into the tissues causes the skin in that area to get discoloured.

Symptoms

  • Pain in the area
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration of the skin

Action

  • Keep the bruised area raised
  • Apply a cold compress at intervals of 20-30 minutes
  • Rest the bruised area
  • Do not apply ice directly on skin
  • If the bruise is large or painful or has developed for no known reason - consult a doctor
