Any suggestions for minimizing the effect of bruising? I have an interview tomorrow and well a hazard of my job currently involves me getting hit, kicked, etc.

I have put on lotion and aloe Vera, both have down graded the pain from a bad sun burn to more comfortable. Since I have an interview tomorrow though kind of worried?!

I read that Vitamin K cream can help the body absorb blood, therefore reducing bruising. Also, no heat, and only ice on it. Heat will increase circulation, therefore it can bruise worse. I haven't used these techniques though, just read about them.

Rower,

I just have to ask - what type of job do you have that involves kicking and brusing?

I put on tons of lotion and aloe Vera to hydrate the skin which dulled the pain and seemed to prevent bruising. Still kind sore but better. I work with behaviorally challenged students this year. Encouraging them to change their behaviors or work for longer than they would like at times causes them great frustration.

Some of these students lash out at others while others direct the anger inward. It can vary from verbal, physical, destructive, etc. They have improved, but they still have their moments.

The interview went very well! Crossing fingers!

1000 to 2000mg of Vit C is supposed to prevent one from bruising too bad!
