In this video, you will learn how to administer first aid in order to limit the spreading of a haematoma or bruise

A haematoma occurs most often after a physical trauma. The affected area of the body turns blue and can also become swollen.

Immediately apply an ice pack wrapped in a cloth in order to ease pain and swelling.

Do not leave ice in contact with naked skin for longer than 20 minutes as doing so could provoke lesions

Call a doctor if the haemotoma persists or if it becomes very painful.

A surgical puncture may be required to drain the collected blood
