Homeopathy: For newly formed bruising, take a 30C remedy four times a day. In case of chronic bruising, take a dilution of 6D, 12D, 6C, 12C or 30C twice a day for two weeks. In case of improvement, stop taking it. In any case, it is advisable to consult a homeopath.
Arnica: Arnica montana is useful for tissue injuries and in the treatment and prevention of bruising. The bruised part is livid and painful. Symptoms get worse to the touch and with the movement, while they are attenuated with the application of cold compresses and in the open air.
Bellis perennis: This is for hematomas caused by traumas in deep internal tissues, especially if they involve the abdomen, back and chest. It is suitable for bruises that do not respond to arnica treatment. Swelling may occur in the affected area. Symptoms are aggravated with cold and tactile baths.
Ferrum phosphoricum: This is the appropriate remedy when ecchymosis is due to anemia.
Hamamelis: When the condition is associated with aging, Hamamelis is particularly indicated for venous extravasation and when symptoms get worse with pressure and cold compresses.
Ledum: Ledum palustre is great for hematomas that are due to injuries caused by sharp objects and also for distortions and strains.
Ruta: Ruta graveolens is great for bruising due to decanting of the capillaries of the bone lining (for example on the tibia) or deriving from cartilage or joint traumas.
Sulphuricum Acidum: This can be applied for extensive red or black-bluish hematomas accompanied by pruritus after arnica doesn’t work.
Aromatherapy: Add 2 drops of lavender oil to a base oil and rub on the injured part twice a day.
