Hey guys,

Had a fight the other night! Ok, so it was an MMA fight and I was competing but I took a massive kick to the kidney and back area. I've attached a photo for you all to see:rotfl:

Any tips on how to reduce the bruising?

That looks painful! My mum's friend is a doctor and she said it's pretty common because of where I got hit. She said it will reduce but I want gone sooner than later lol.

Heat pads/compresses(about 2 days after it, up to then, cold packs and compresses), and Vitamin K cream or Gel.

Brilliant. Thanks for this I'll give it a go. Luckily it doesn't hurt, and for those who want to know I won the fight in the 4th round:cool:

It's all about heat and warmth after its set in..until it does, cold/Ice is the way to go
And the Vitamin K is good for reducing it..also works well for thread veins, old mens noses, etc:rotfl:

Now call me cynical, but surely anyone in a MMA fight would know how to treat bruising unless it was your first time.

Compression is the way forward, as advised by my Nan's GP when she dropped a sideboard on her leg, for the first time.

Holding up today's newspaper or an AVF sign? ;)
It was my first ever official fight after around six months of training. If you really require an AVF sign (not that I have to prove anything) then I'm happy to do so;)

Hey, I was just kidding...my wife is into MMA and trains 4 or 5 times a week so I know what kind of bruises you can get. Recover soon pal!

Ahh ok sorry for being snappy. Can be hard to read a joke sometimes through text lol.

I'll recover I'm sure it doesn't hurt, just looks much worse than it is.

When I get bruised like that, I tell my wife to get me a steak to put on it, it doesn't work and I don't put the steak on it, but I do get a juicy steak for my tea ;)

If you want to show off your bruising, fair enough.
but if your concerned about what to do. Your GP is then answer not AVF
