Update on Bruise . . . Two Days Later
So, um . . . it’s bigger.
Here’s the previous post about it, if you want to compare.
I’ve been getting enough bad comments (read “worried”), that I did go by the on-campus medical center just to have it checked out. They did, but they told me that this just sometimes happens and there’s not really anything that can be done about it.
Well, in the meantime, my roommate, who is from China btw, is practicing her traditional medicine on it. It’s this ointment stuff and it’s yellow. And that’s about all I know about it. She doesn’t know an American word for it, so I really don’t know what it is, but only that it makes my arm sort of cool and tingly and that’s good. 🙂
In addition, I have another friend who works at the library on my campus, who suggested that I use moist heat on it. He had recently gotten a really bad bruise and had found that that had really worked well for him.
At this point, I’m accepting suggestions.
