Bruises happen when we accidentally hit hard objects. Children often suffer from this problem, mostly because of uncontrolled physical activities. In general, you treat bruises with external medications, such as applying ointments, dressing bruises, or compressing with ice cubes. Internally, you may take paracetamol to relieve pain. However, the most common thing to do is apply ointment, and apply ice to the bruised area.

In contrast to external medicine, our elders have herbs to treat bruises from the inside. Book 493 Resep Ramuan Herbal Berkhasiat (493 Efficacious Herbs Recipes) notes that there is a plant effective enough to heal bruises from within, namely the paku sarang burung/ Bird’s Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus). When a bruise occurs, you only need to prepare 15 grams of paku sarang burung leaves, then boil it for 10 minutes. Strain the water and drink 2 times a day every morning and evening until the bruise heals.
