Is there a Product/Treatment for Bruises?
I had several blood draws, in my artery by my wrist,and forearms,and have severe bruising,with pain in that area,I thought there was a treatment for helping to clear up bruises more quickly,I cant seem to recall what it was,is there a product or something i could apply to the areas to help them heal faster?is it red meat like steaks that help heal bruises by bringing the blood to the surface?any help would be great..
Sorry, but I am not aware of anything that speeds the body's response to this type of injury. Thank you for visiting NetWellness.
