How long does it take for a black eye to go away?

I fell of a four-wheeler and hit my eye with my fist through the helmet! it really hurts and I don't know how I'm gonna get people to not laugh at me.. does anyone know?

that depends on the severity of the black eye, you should consult a doctor to see your eye as well if it hurts that bad, and about the people i would recommend either ignoring them, or laughing with them, that usually throws people off.

it really depends on how severe it is.a bruise is merely just a pool of blood under your skin

The period will be determined by how severe the black eye is it can go up to three weeks. To make it disappear faster you can put an ice pack there. This will stop the black eye from spreading too far. You should observe your diet and eat food which are high in vitamin K and A.

It all depends on how bad the bruise is. Raw meat does nothing other than keep the bruise cold, and take the shape of your face, but it is helpful. Don't try to cover it with makeup. If your so afraid of what your friends will think, or other people, then they aren't your true friends. Covering your face with makeup will make you look like an idiot, and it will irritate any cuts you have on your face. Don't say you punched yourself, and just say you were riding the four wheeler on a hill with a lot of rocks and you fell and hit your eye on a rock. If someone asks why your eye isn't cut say the rock was dull and you didn't fall that hard. Good luck! Your awesome, black eyes are fine just don't lie and say you got in a fight. It's bad for your image, your boss will hear, and he may fire you.

Well give your eye 2 weeks to get a normal color but after the 2 weeks your eye will still hurt but nobody will be able to see it........ or put your color skin tone make up around your eye... your eye will still look a little big but there is a few tricks I just happen to know. LOL

Dont worry what other people think, heck my mother got mad at me when I was 19 or 20, I was drunk and running my mouth trying to start a fight with five guys and my mother told me to shut up and of course I didn't so she hit me in the eye with her fist and I got a black eye. Had she not hit me I probably would have got worse then a black eye from the five guys I wanted to fight.....LOL. Hell I was proud of that black eye, I wore it with pride.

It depends how bad it is, and how you treat it. If it is a bad one, and you don't do anything about it, it will take about 2 weeks to fully go away. If it is a bad one, but you ice it, it will last about a week and a half. If its not a bad one and you ice it, it will last about a half a week, to a week. It depends on how you care for it. Also, put make-up on until it is fully gone.

Don't worry about people laughing at you. If your fist was strong enough to hurt through your helmet, than I would say that you are very strong and made of tough stuff!

idk how long it takes it to heal but there is this wierd old trick that if you put cold cut meat on a black eye it will heal 5x faster than it takes it to heal normally and i normally use steak for stuff like that

Find a massage therapist certified in Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy. It is a gentle bodywork technique that reduces swelling and clears the cellular debris in the tissue much faster than natural healing. An eye swollen shut can be cleared up in less than a week with daily treatment, as opposed to up to a month. Important if you need to present a professional appearance and can't wait for nature to take its course.
