    OK, so I met a guy who was actually willing to have sex with me. I now have the hickey from Hell on my neck. I put an ice bag on it a half hour or so after it happened. Does anyone know what else I can try to make this bruise less obvious? If, as a last resort, I have to try some type of makeup to cover it, what would I use?

    Dont use a foundation, use concealer and a light powder in your same skin tone to get rid of the shine from the concealer..

    I think heat and some light rubbing/massage will increase circulation and move the accumulation of blood away faster.

    To help the bruising decrease faster, get some Arnica gel.

    You can try Arnica gel. You can find it most health food stores. You'll notice a big difference within the first 24 hours. Good luck.

    Well you could refrain from the activity that causes it for future consideration... but that might not be an option...... LOL

    What is the purpose of a giving a hickey? Is it like branding? Totally unnecessary.

    Well, if it's still cold enough in Iowa, you could try a dashing scarf/muffler for a few days. And a turtleneck, as someone suggested. As for makeup, concealer was mentioned, in your skin tone. With White guys the neck is often lighter than the face, so you should show the cosmetics counter person who's helping you the place where makeup is intended.

    Haha, I had one of those once. Quote from my friend: "Wow, that really is the size of Jupiter!"

    I used makeup for one day, but after that I just stopped caring what people would think!

    periodic warm compresses and tactful ignoring of curiosity

    Makeup? Not.

    band-aid (if it is big enough to cover it)? just make up a story, people won't ask you to peel it off anyway.

    smacking him in the chops for being such a 14y/o and giving you one will make you feel better.

    Yeah, I think you should tell him you have something better to use his suction-power on...

    No, never want to see this guy again. Not just a careless sucker, he was absolutely psycho. You should see the bite marks on my back!! Needless to say, I got out of the situation as soon as he turned weird. I wish I had paused on the way out to punch him in the face.

    I'm now off to Walgreen's to buy arnica gel and concealer.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    You don't need a treatment, you need lies and excuses about how you got it. Think about a Dyson accident while trying to remove cobwebs from ceiling corners.
