  • only other way besides those is to just wait a couple days for it to heal
    or get hickies in less visible areas ;-)

  • Do you have a tube of chapstick, or something shaped similar? Take the cap end of the chapstick and put it on the hickey and twist it. It doesn't feel very good but a few shots of that with some icing it in between should lessen it.

  • Try arnica gel. A hickey is really a kink of bruise, so the gel should help break up the blood under the skin if it's massaged on 2x a day for the first 2-3 days after you get it.

  • Or get a very cold spoon after it being in the fridge and put on hickey and doing it in a twisting motion soon the hickey will start to spread evenly. GL Butthe best thing is TIME
