I bruise very easily & whilst I don’t mind, it’s not a great look in the office. Are there any products available to help reduce the bruising?

  • The lemon and water sound’s like a great idea!

  • Hirodoid cream is brilliant and is best used as soon as bruising occurs. It may pay to have a fbe full blood examination as you may have an irregular blood count.

  • rub the inside of a banana skin on the bruise for 30 secs

  • Arnica from the chemist was recommended to me to bring out the bruising

  • talk to your dr, your white blood count may be low

  • I drink a glass of WARM lemon water in the morning. It takes getting used to but I think it’s working. I still get bruises but just nowhere near as noticeable.

  • Hirudoid cream is brilliant, and what we always used when I worked as a nurse, and we had patients who had bad bruising from surgery or having a drip in. If you prefer something natural, Arnica is very good. I’ve been told that Haemorrhoid cream also works well but I’ve never tried it, so I don’t know if it’s true.

  • I have the same problem, so good comments here. Thanks everyone.

  • there are some good comments here

  • I hope you found something good

  • Trying to think What my aunt had. Ask the chemist they will know. :-)

  • see you r doctor to check that everything is fine if you are covered in bruises as this is not so common.

  • Interesting answers, my husband bruises easily, so will follow up

  • I swear by Hirudoid cream! I bruise easily too and this cream does wonders for me!

  • I also bruise very easily – if my kids crab at me within a few hours I have finger bruise marks. I have read that lemon in water helps. I tried it but haven’t noticed much difference for me. I hope this great network of mums can make some new suggestions – I’ll be watching for other suggestions for myself.
