Bruises. Boiled egg to cure bruise

Submitted by Melissa, Toronto, ON, Canada

Hardboil an egg. Place in a thin piece of cotton, shell and all, and break into chunks. Rub on bruise and watch it disappear. (The warmth feels good too!)

Oh yes it does!!! I'm doing it at the same time as I'm writing this sentence! My dad who's chinese thought of it.
Of course it works!! Comments By: Mich on 2009-04-13
It works but you don't need to break it into chunks and you need to make sure the egg is REALLY BOILING HOT for it to work. Doesn't work if it's warm.

It really works!! Just dont' break the egg, just peel the shell off and after you use it, look at the inside of the egg (yolk) and you will see it has grey and black bits throughout it!
