There’s a new trend on TikTok of people trying to get rid of their hickeys by massaging them with whisks. One such video was posted by user @thesecretthoebag and has over 38 million views. In the clip she rubs a metal whisk over the red mark on her neck, which is also known as a love bite. The trend seems to have originated in January, when TikTok user Madison Larocque got 13.5 million views on her video demonstrating the method. Pediatrician Dr. David Shafran says the method may work because the pressure from the whisk breaks up the clotted blood that’s accumulated under the skin for faster reabsorption. He adds that doing this when a hickey is fresh is probably when it works best. Another doctor says the risks of doing this are low, but that, “If the contusion were extensive enough, I’d caution applying too much pressure with […] any kitchen utensil.”
