Thumbup Hickeys? Erase Them Away!

So I just set up my personalized Google homepage and added the "How To of the Day" block which includes an entry on how to get rid of hickeys.

The main entry is old news, but scroll down past the slightly disturbing pictures (especially the turtleneck one) to the user tip to find out how to get rid of hickeys using ice and a pencil erasers.

Where was the internet when I was in high school? 1. Take an ice cube, wrap it in a napkin and press it on your hickey for about 10 minutes or until completely numb.

2. Pat the area dry and take the eraser tip of a pencil (it may sound weird) and rub the area. Press and rub in circles. About 10-15 minutes. Do this after the ice, hickeys are sometimes painful and pressing on them only increases it. If numb, there won't be pain.

3. Now, take a wash cloth and let it run under hot water for a minute. Or you can microwave the cloth for a minute or two. Apply the cloth to the hickey and let sit for about 15 minutes. If it cools off to quickly, let it run under hot water again and apply.

By this time the hickey should be a faint pink. If not keep repeating the steps. Remember: A little bit of concealer never hurts.


Use it wisely, my young friends.

Hehe. It is too bad I have no use for such advice. :cry:

I think a wet cloth microwaved for a minute or two will give you 3rd degree burns and obliterate the hickey.

What's the problem with hickey's anyway? Shit, if a woman gave me a hickey I'd be damn proud of it. It meant that she was enthusiastic enough to leave a mark.

Well, they can lead to some uncomfortable parental interrogations. Also, they're really ugly.

Another problem is the staring. Depending on context, one might not necessarily want people's focus entirely centered on one's neck instead of, say, on what's being contracted and/or notarized.

I've never had a hickey nor given a hickey, I don't see any reason for it. Please enlighten my unenlightened mind on the subject.

Note: I don't think the cure in the OP will work anyway. A hickey isn't a surface mark. Or is it? Hell, I don't know, I'm ignorant on the subject.

It is broken blood vessels beneath the skin, I think the turtleneck is the best bet.

Perhaps leeches could be used to remove the blood pooled beneath the surface of the skin.

There are other places where hickeys can be created, you know. The neck isn't the only possible location for hickeys.

Well yeees... but you don't need to work to cover those up so the OP wouldn't really apply to them.

Sounds like it just breaks up the bruised blood under the skin and lets the body then clean it away. Interesting. Physios use the same technique for damaged muscles and such as well.

They can feel good during application, although the really notable, long-lasting kind hickey most likely hurt like a bastard at some point.

So it's nothing to do with the eraser per se, or is it a good targeted massage vehicle or something?

Yeah, the eraser would be the right size and substance to work the blood through the tissue and clean away the bruise, just like someone's palm on a damaged thigh or calf muscle.

Just tell anyone that asks about your hickies that you got in a fight with a shop vacuum and lost.

'Erase them away' is tautological. Get it sorted immediately, or I'll stop posting in this forum and THEN WHERE WILL YOU BE?!
