How do bruises heal?

It depends what type (how severe) it is.

Here is a list of the color of the bruise, from worst to best:

  • purple
  • brown
  • blue
  • green
  • yellow

Even If you have a purple bruise, then it's not that bad. The worst thing to do to a bruise is to touch it, especially pushing on it. leave it alone, and it will heal in a couple of days. For more info if it has not healed within a week, go to if it's bad. If there are other bad signs, go see your doctor, or if they are horrible, call 911!
