Hi everyone welcome to our channel today we will discuss how to get rid of black eye A black eye is basically a bruise on the skin of and around the eyelid. Along with the telltale discoloration, there is swelling and pain. One may experience difficulty opening the eyelid, blurry vision and a headache. The most common cause of a black eye is blunt trauma to the eye region due to a fall or any sort of accident. The force of the injury causes the capillaries under the skin to burst and bleed into the nearby soft tissue. The bruise typically starts as deep purple or blackish-blue. As the injury begins to heal, it may turn green and then yellow before vanishing completely. Injuries that may cause eyeball damage also exhibit black eye symptoms. Get your eyes checked by a specialist if you�re experiencing double vision or loss of vision. Bad cases of sinus infections may also produce black eye-like symptoms. While there�s no way you can get rid of that black eye in a snap, there�s plenty that you can do to speed up the healing process.
Instead of popping ibuprofen, you can use natural remedies to help your bruised eye heal quickly. Here are few easy and effective methods to get rid of a black eye fast and safely. Home Remedy # 1 Ice Pack A makeshift ice pack can be used as a cold compress to reduce swelling around your eye. You can also use a bag of frozen vegetables for this purpose. Put ice cubes in a clean, cotton cloth and bundle it up for a makeshift ice pack.
Apply the ice pack over the black eye. This remedy should be repeated 3 or 4 times daily until the swelling goes down. Home Remedy # 2 Cold Spoon A cold spoon is a very convenient way to administer a cold compress on a black eye. Hold a cold spoon over the black eye for 10 to 15 minutes. When the spoon gets warmer, replace it with a fresh cold spoon. Repeat this remedy 3 or 4 times daily. Home Remedy # 3 Arnica Gel Arnica, extracted from the yellow flower of the Arnica montana plant, has long been used for medicinal purposes and has been an important pillar of alternative medicine. Gently apply arnica gel on the bruised area around your eye, taking care that it doesn�t get into your eyes. Don�t rub it in or massage the area. Just apply the gel before going to bed so that it can work while the injured tissues rest.
Home Remedy # 4 Witch Hazel If you�ve used witch hazel to get rid of back acne, you�re probably familiar with its astringent properties due to the presence of tannins. Soak a clean cotton ball or cloth in witch hazel and hold it over your black eye for a few minutes. Repeat several times a day for a speedy recovery. Home Remedy # 5 Cayenne Pepper The capsaicin present in cayenne pepper gives it anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce the swelling from a black eye and speed up the healing process. Combine vaseline and cayenne pepper in a ratio of 5:1. Mix the ingredients well. Apply the paste on the bruised eye. Let it sit for a couple of hours before wiping it off. Home Remedy # 6 Hard-Boiled Egg Hard-boiled eggs have long been used to treat bruises and can be effectively used to reduce pain and swelling due to a black eye.
Peel the shell off a freshly cooked hard-boiled egg. You�ll want to use it when it�s still hot. Put the peeled egg in a clean, cotton cloth and make a bundle. Apply the hot egg compress to the affected eye. While there�s no way you can get rid of that black eye in a snap, there�s plenty that you can do to speed up the healing process. Instead of popping ibuprofen, you can use natural remedies to help your bruised eye heal quickly..
