How to make forehead bumps go down faster?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
OK, probably a silly question. But, ds's first birthday party and blessing ceremony are tomorrow, and he bumped his head today and has a big ugly bruise on his forehead! (They all have such a knack for hitting their head before special occasions!!!)

Is there a way to reduce it before tomorrow?

I don't know that you can get it to go away that fast, but I always use arnica for bruising- you can put gel on the bruise and/or take the pellets internally

I don't know about head injuries, but usually for a bruise you should rub it had right away to keep the b lood from pooling to form a bruise. I don't know if it is too late, but a gentle massage might help break it up, and lighten it.
If not, concealor maybe?:LOL

For my one bump prone DD I have found that putting Arnica cream on right after the booboo happens that the bump and color is greatly diminished.

Another vote for arnica. My kids contantly have bumps & bruises on their heads. I use just plain arnica oil (from www.kerrysherbals.com) on the bump. The sooner I apply it, the better. The bump goes away, and the color dimineshes. An additional note: it's not recommended to use arnica on open wounds.

arnica arnica arnica

I prefer the gel for head injuries because it doesn't make hair sticky

Another vote for arnica, especially gel directly on the site, the the sublingual tablets will help, too. I always keep arnica on hand -- it's great for use on bruising/bumps, and also works really well on tense, sore muscles for mamas and daddies, too.

Arnica 30C homeopathic remedy.
