What is the best way to get rid of a hickey ?

I have this hickey my girlfriend gave me and i can't let my dad see it . what do i do ?

Add New Argument

I find it hard to believe that you let your girlfriend give you a hickey where your Dad could see it knowing full well that you can't let him see it. That's like having unprotected sex knowing full well that you can't afford to get pregnant. It is irresponsible and leads to quick fixes like makeup (or, in the case of the later, an abortion). If only you could abort the hickey ;)

BTW, be aware that using makeup is a slippery slope that leads to cross dressing ;)

Even I was Searching the google on how to get rid of Hickey, As My Boyfriend loves to give me Love bites and I can't even able stop him because I also love the way he uses to do it.

But from a Family point of view, its really feel so shameful to show the love bite. So I found some way that can easily help to get rid of the hickey:

1. Aloe Vera Gel: apply it over the bruise in a thick layer for about 10 minutes and then wipe it off. If you do this twice a day, you’ll see results very quickly.

2. Apply some heat: If the hickey is still prominent and showing after 2 days, then you should use some heat on it. Use warm tissue on the area. The heat will increase the blood flow to the area, helping the healing process.

OK guys gather around.

Cause I got the best kept secret for getting rid of hickeys, quickly.

This is tried and tested. IT WORKS. So go with it.

1. Get a battery. One of those fat cylindrical ones. Not the tiny remote control ones. Not even the regular AAA size you put in toys. The fatter ones.

2. Find the negative side (-). Its the flat side.

3. Hold the battery in the middle. Don't touch the positive (+) side.

4. Using circular motion, rub the negative side of the battery on the hickey. You can pull the skin flat with the other hand if you want. Rub firmly but not too firmly.

5. Keep doing this for a few minutes. This will depend on how bad the hickey is. But trust the method and keep at it. It can take 5 - 20 minutes of rubbing.

6. Soon the entire area you have been rubbing will turn pink. But the hickey will have gone.

7. This pink color from the rubbing with go away in about 10 minutes.

8. Voila! No hickey!

9. Time to call your next date around, or your mum, or your boss.... or your... auntie? I dunno!

Check this video to see the process.

I guess it's the iron in your blood that is repelled by the negative magnetic force?

That's amazing.

There is no magic way to treat a hickey. Like a bruise, it takes time for it to go away. Although you can speed up the process by taking the following steps.

Apply a cold compress if a hickey is new

Apply warm compress if 2 days have passed

Massage the hickey gently

Eat strawberries.

That pretty much sums it up! If it still does not go away, you can hide it. Hiding it is your best bet

Let the hickey wear off and throw the guy out the slippery slope he dove in on...then go out and buy a mock turtle neck until that sucker moves on. Amazing what joys people get out of someone sucking on their neck...scares me. I think they're vampires in disguise as a dork. If they really must do this have them put it in a place no one can see and one they'll never opt for again...your armpit!

One sure way to keep hickeys from appearing in the first place is keeping your date from sucking on your skin ;)

If you need it gone FAST, cover it with makeup - even if you're a dude. Borrow some from your girlfriend. Use green corrector, she'll know what it is. Besides that, put some heat on it and rub it with a toothbrush. It will still take a couple days, but it will be way faster than leaving it to nature...

Before you apply the remedies for treating your hickey, make a note:

1. For Recent Hickeys: Apply Ice cubes, frozen spoons, and alcohol to reduce swelling and breaking the blood clots.

2. For Older Hickeys: Use a coin or apply a hot compress for dilating the vessels. This, in turn, improves blood flow.

You have lots of tips already. The only other thing no one thought of is to re-injure so the marks appear to be part of the new injury. You could have a friend hit you in the neck with a stick.

No, I wouldn't do that either. But it could work.

There is Not any proper cure for hickeys. As its disappear themselves with time. How individual human body responds fast to heal it all depends upon.

Mostly it takes 5-12 days to go from your skin. But still we get to read about many ways to heal it.

They are actually the home remedies to get relieved from pain or make them support to heal fast.

But still, would try to mention out for the best way to heal the hickey fast.

As human body only helps it, so take proper diet for vitamin C i.e orange juice to heal fast. Or can take aspirin tablet to increase blood flow which will make heal it fast.

Arnica Gel Are also recommended in hickeys.
