So, my clutzy self took a tumble down the stairs Saturday morning. I guess I was in a hurry and my foot just slipped out from under me. Thankfully, I fell backwards and went down on my hip/butt rather than face first. Also, I'm pretty lucky that I didn't break anything. My hip took the brunt of the fall and now I have a huge bruise about the size of my hand. It hurt like crazy the first couple of days. I could hardly touch it but now most of that soreness is gone. It just looks terrible. The problem is that now I am itching like crazy where the bruise is. It's like an internal itch so scratching does not help. The bruise has changed color from dark purple to reddish. I am hoping that this means its healing, but the itching is driving me nuts. Does anyone know if this is normal? Any idea how to make it stop?
