Everybody gets bruises at one time or another. Although they are not the result of deteriorating health and usually do not call for any medical attention, the sight of a bruise is hard to ignore.
Bruises typically occur when some part of your body takes a hard hit. The injury does not break the skin, but the blood vessels underneath the skin are ruptured. This damaged vessels leak blood into the surrounding tissues, causing black-and-blue patterns on the skin that are often accompanied by pain and inflammation.
However, there are other possible causes like delicate skin tissues, lack of vitamin D or coagulation (manifestation of a platelet issue) that can lead to bruises on your skin.
Medically termed as a contusion, most bruises fade away on their own in a couple of days. However, in some cases, you might want to get rid of bruises fast or maybe even overnight.
