A hematoma is a limited accumulation of blood in case of damage to tissues and organs with rupture of blood vessels. In this case, a cavity is formed, which is filled with liquid or coagulated blood. Depending on the localization, subserous, intramuscular, subdural and other types of hematomas are distinguished. In relation to the lumen of the blood vessel - pulsating and non-pulsating. Clotted, infected and festering are distinguished from the state of the outflowing blood. At home, hematomas of the brain and internal organs cannot be treated.
It is necessary
- - onions, table salt, honey;
- - beets, baking soda, honey;
- - apple cider vinegar, table salt, iodine;
- - wormwood herb.
For medium bruises, prepare the following remedy. Grate a medium-sized onion head with a tablespoon of table salt and a teaspoon of honey, stir well until smooth. Put the resulting mass on a gauze napkin and, applying it to the hematoma and covering with compression paper, fix it with a bandage. Change the compress 3 times a day, each time preparing a fresh composition. The hematoma resolves within 3-4 days.
You can also use a root vegetable or beet leaves to treat hematomas. For minor damage, you can apply mashed beet leaves to it and fix it with a bandage for 3-4 hours. Then replace with fresh leaves. For larger hematomas, beetroot will help. After washing the medium-sized root vegetable, grate on a fine grater along with the skin, then add a tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of baking soda and stir thoroughly. Laying it out on a gauze napkin with a layer of 1 cm, roll it up with an envelope and, attaching it to the sore spot, cover it with perforated cellophane and fix it with a bandage. Change the compress 2 times a day. The hematoma resolves within 3-5 days.
For more serious bruises, which may be accompanied by severe swelling, it is necessary, first of all, to apply a cold bandage. As a cooler, you can use any available means from the freezer: from a piece of frozen meat wrapped in a towel to an ordinary piece of ice. But it is most effective to use the following tool.
Lightly heat half a liter of apple cider vinegar (preferably homemade), add a tablespoon of table salt to it, stir until it is completely dissolved, then drip 7-9 drops of iodine into the resulting solution. Prepare a piece of cotton cloth and, wet in the prepared composition, wrap the damaged area in layers. Before the last layer, place small pieces of ice on the sore spot and wrap them with the last layer of cloth. Then cover with a terry towel and secure with a bandage to prevent the compress from falling off. Lie quietly with this compress for 10 minutes. Repeat after 1-1.5 hours.
In case of severe hematomas, one day after cold treatment, they are recommended to be warmed up with dry heat, alcohol tinctures, warming ointments, and herbal vapors with anti-inflammatory properties.
Bitter wormwood helps well, which can be used both fresh, brewed for 30 minutes, and dry, which, having boiled and boiled for 15 minutes over low heat, apply to the hematoma, fixing with a bandage, for 2-3 hours. The course of treatment is 3-7 days, depending on the condition of the injury.
