I heard Arnica is really good. I will try the things you guys suggested. Thanks!

knightwolf16- I wear ultralite pants and top. Both are really baggy on me. I don't really wear any protective gear besides my mask and the occational knee pads. I just saw that Dye has womens slider shorts, which is awesome! I will probably pick up a pair of those. Something has to be better than nothing.

Nothing to worry about at all.
Stuff like that can last for a long long time, depending on how deep it was bruised.
In fact, I had a scrape on my knee, that left a red mark for over 8 months! (Went away eventually)

I would make armor out of metal and wrap it in memmory foam, OR carbon fiber and wrap it in foam, with the metal you would cut 2 holes and put a belt through both and cut it down so there is no slack when you put it on, with the carbon fiber you need to cut the holes in it BEFORE you apply the resin to make it hard, the do the same thing with the belt, itwould be cheaper to do it with metal but unless you are well conditioned it will get heavy and it will dent if you get it to thin so you should probably go with carbon fiber.

i know some people just take a while for bruises to heal like i know my sister when she gets bruises (which is quite often she will tell you she is the biggest clutz around) it will take months sometimes for them to heal i dont know how or why but some people it just takes longer i know other girls that when they get a bruise it goes away fast

Why not use bubble wrap then... Light weight and makes popping noises if you land on them hard enough

I wear fatigues. They're heavy cotton, similar to denim, and are extremely baggy. The thinness of the material may no absorb much force from the paintball. I wear slider pants as well.

Also, those hits could have come from someone shooting hot. The worst hit that I have received was from a marker that they gave a groom during a bachelor party. They were having issues with it but let him use it anyway. I took two shots from this thing. The first was point blank through a windo on my hand. I was wearing half finger gloves with the plastic armor on the back of the hand. I lost feeling in my hand for about 5-10 minutes.

The second hit was to my outer thigh. When I was changing after the game, the owner of the field saw my leg and said nice hit. I looked down and had a ribbon of blood down the side of my leg, The hit took over 2 months to heal completely. I was wearing a set of tiger stripe fatigues that day and it still did a number on me.

One of my sisters is very fair skinned and is very easy to bruise, I can cause a bruise just by poking her in the arm. Even those "gently" bruises seem to last 3 or 4 days longer than a normal bruise on me. I can just imagine what a paintball bruise would do to her.

As Knightwolf said, check with your Dr to see if there is anything you an do, aside from slider shorts.

WHOA puzuma isn't a seventy year old only child hermit!! jk i couldn't resist. I would recommend some slider shorts or get some subdued colored speedball pants. These absorb impact well and aren't bright red. and like they say talk to your doctor.
If you've bunkered someone put this in your sig.

Don't be too concerned. I have several permanent "welts". They are just welt-shaped scars, really. Each has a story. One looks like a 3rd nipple...

Take a look at sliders for other sports too. Both Nike and UnderArmour make great sliders for football, baseball and soccer.

A bruise is the result of the capillaries in the bruised area being damaged. If a bruise persists for more than several moths it is a clear sign of deep muscle bruising and possible tissue damage and a doctor should be consulted.

i wear Skins compression tights, which are like the underarmour stuff, since wearing them i have noticed that it has greatly reduced the impact a paintball, no matter the range, i would suggest looking into getting a set because my bruises are lil pink marks on the skin that are usually gone within a week

just thought id add that i have been shot at point blank range whilst wearing them and yes it still does hurt but i can tell there is a big difference

I have like 7 of those all over my back from a stupid paintball idea that left my back covered in bleeding welts, mine have been there for about two years and show no signs of gong away, but they don't seem to cause any harm.
