What is a Bruising?

Bruise Classifications

In general, bruises can be divided into three main types: periosteal bruises in the bones, intramuscular bruises in the muscles, and subcutaneous bruises under the skin. They can vary in terms of sizes, colors, and other features. Most cases often happen suddenly and last for several days up to several months. Depending on the type of bruises you experience, there might be different treatment options or home remedies to help with healing. [2]
