Unit 11: Protocol for resolving bruising and swelling.

  1. Hot compress: very hot water, soak clean cloth, wring out very tight, lay over the face so that the heat and steam goes to the face. Repeat several times, ideally every 2 hours if possible.
  2. Arnica cream: Available in Boots, apply generously before going to bed, will help resolve bruising.
  3. Wearing a compression garment can help with the swelling (and results).
