Introduction – What are Bruises?

Bruises, also known as contusions, are skin injuries that occur when the small blood vessels beneath the skin rupture due to trauma or injury. They are typically characterized by discoloration, swelling, and tenderness in the affected area. Bruises can appear on any part of the body and vary in size and severity depending on the impact or force applied to the skin. While bruises may be painful and unsightly, they are usually not a cause for concern and tend to heal on their own within a few weeks.
