ibuprofen

After a period of two to six months, the swelling and irritation will go down and the scar tissue will soften and begin to blend into the surrounding tissue and the color will change from black to green to yellowish and then normal skin color. But if there is any redness, severe pain in the wound, fever or drainage of any serous or watery discharge or any pus from the wound then infection should be suspected.

I've gone through spurts where I bruise TERRIBLY and don't even have to hurt myself and at other times it's been just fine and nothing pops up. Are your numbers all "normal"?
Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist.

There was also pain, but I figured it would subside. After the first day the pain ceased completley but bruising still exists. Since I'm in a foreign country and health care here is rather expensive, I thought asking first if this is normal would be a good idea before consulting a doctor. I'm rather worried and am wondering if this is an early sign of something much more serious? Thank you for any and all help.
The discoloration may persist for a fortnight and change colors as the haemoglobin pigment undergoes changes. Apply warm compresses,Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it.You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.If the spot persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Mondor’s disease or superficial lymphangitis also need to be ruled out.
I just had my sixth infusion and I've been noticing for the last couple of months that I'm bruising really easily. I went to the dentist yesterday and bruised where he held underneath my chin to give me a shot of anesthetic. He was very gentle and it didn't hurt at all, so I don't know why I bruised. I've also had bruising from acupuncture and massage which has never happened before. Most of them don't last long, but I've had a few that lasted a couple of weeks. Any suggestions?
Hi and thanks for using the forum. I am not aware of any relationship between the flu and bruising. The only thing I could think of was that often times when someone has the flu, they tend to be run down and pale. The bruises could be more visible than they normally would be. The earache should clear up on its own- continue to take the ibuprofen as needed for the pain- earaches are TERRIBLE! I would wait until you have recovered from the flu and have had some time to get better.

I wrestled in highschool (similar physical exertion) and did not suffer severe bruising. I work out very hard and eat maybe 1-2 meals a day (not including protein shakes). I have 10.8% body fat so do not have high fat content that could cause bruising. I may have started suffering more severe bruising after two back surgeries 5-6 years ago. The bruises develop very quickly, in fact by the end of an hour long class they are visible.
it did the same thing on her upper thighs with bruising under the skin. I took her back to Doctor on the next Mon. and he nore the Pediatrition knew what it was so they ordered blood work. It came back saying her white blood count was high. We went back today and they siad her white count was up maybe due to her taking the steroids. And since she is no longer breaking out and the bruises went away is must have been a virus. It is frustrating not knowing exactly what happened.
Dear Carol, Bruising can be caused by trauma, defects in clotting and coagulation or vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels). There are many causes of coagulation defects. Taking large doses of aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen [Advil or Motrin]) can cause platelet dysfunction. End stage liver disease is also associated with coagulation defects.
The blood under the skin which causes the discoloration of bruising should be totally reabsorbed by the body in three weeks or less.

Lulu and Julie, I'm taking ibuprofen for my hand and foot pain (doesn't seem to help). And I don't take asprin very often, like once or twice a month when I get a headache. I take asthma meds, cartia, allegra, stuff for my stomach, and different estrogen pills, but nothing that would cause me to bleed, i don't think. My PCP won't do anything but shake his head, so going there isn't any good, and as you may know I don't have a neuro.

This is not related to training equipment, but there was not another proper option listed) I leaned over a narrow windowsill ledge in an open window after dropping something out side and trying to retreive it, and ended up huring my upper rib on the left side, just under my left breast. It was only slightly painful at first, but has increased significantly over the past 2 days.
Last night I fell and my throat hit a metal chair on the right side. It has not stopped hurting, its hard to swallow and its still very painful. What should I do to ease the pain? it feels bruised inside, but no bruising on the outside.I am taking IB, but its not really helping.
My ankle and foot swelled up to almost double it's normal size and had some really bad bruising. I ended up just sucking it up like the military teaches and now I'm having some pretty decent pain usually in the mornings and before bed. I've taken OTC pain killers with no success. I usually just end up soaking it and loading up on ibuprofen. It takes a bit of the edge off the pain but not much. What I don't get though is my ankle looks completely normal.
It was sore and tender and also somewhat swollen but no bruising. Talked to his pediatrician and they said to keep an eye on it rest, ice, and ibuprofen which we have done. Now the pain seems worse there is still swelling and he can barley move his arms or anything without pain. Should I be concerned that he may have a sternal fracture or is it likely just bruised and muscle pain? Am I better off taking him to an immediate care facility or taking him to his peditrician?
Actually, I think Tylenol and ibuprofen are mentioned -- I believe ssris warn of possible bleeding and bruising from nsaids, and both of the above are nsaids. I doubt it stops any of us from using them, but drugs are always going to present possible problems, and docs and pharmacists are pretty clueless about them. There's just too many of them, and most only happen to a minority of users, sometimes a small minority.
Migraine - early am - Was high intensity and used hydrocodone. Migraine - evening - Was one step lower in intensity and used tylenol with codeine Migraine - continued evening - One step lower yet in intensity and chose Advil. Hoping that going to sleep with Advil will help it go away .. hate to use prescription meds unless I have to .. it's always a gamble at this point.
Are you on any other medications or under a doctor's care for anything? If you have taken the ibuprofen in the past and made out ok with it, AND you are not on any other medications or under a doctor's care for anything, then I would say it's ok to take to help with inflammation and pain. HOWEVER, if you are taking any other medications and/or under a doctor's care for anything, then please check with your doctor before adding/changing any medications, including over the counter meds.
You may have sprained a tendon in your finger and now have surrounding bruising and swelling that takes time to resolve. It may look concerning and can be quite painful, and it may take several weeks to heal. Some things you can do to help the healing process include icing your finger, elevating the hand, and gently moving and stretching your finger. You may also benefit from anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen.
The treatment is suppression with the birthcontrol pill and nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. It could be that you have endometriosis.If the pill does not help, sometimes going to a laparoscopy to document this diagnosis is reasonable - specially since you have significant symptoms. However, it may be unrelated to your gyn system. You should ask your primary care about the possibility of evaluation by colonoscopy to look for inflammatory bowel disease.
Hmm...well, have the swelling back again with noticeable bruising and very sore on my left jawline up to in front or ear area...had before...I also have "clicking" when I speak...but not all the time...if I press on the area I feel a fairly large "trigger point"...and I am famous for massaging rather vigorously on those points when I find them...for me the deep pressure of the massage alleviates some of the pain...
Hello, This can be due to hematoma formation or compression of nerves because of hematoma formed or by direct trauma during the biopsy. Apply some cold compresses and take some anti inflammatory pain reliever like ibuprofen or diclofenac. Also apply topical muscle relaxant and take some vitamin B 12 supplements. If the symptoms persist then you may need antibiotics as infection has to be ruled out.
