Does putting raw meat on a black eye really work? If so, why?
I've often heard that putting a raw steak against a black eye will help. I've never tried it before, but I want to know, does it really work? If so, in what ways does it help, and why does it help?

It's not just the meat it's the cold, you can use a frozen bag o green beans if you want

Forget the old adage about putting a steak or a piece of raw meat on a black eye. No scientific evidence supports this claim. In addition, there is a danger in putting potentially bacteria-laden meat on a mucous membrane or an open skin injury. Black Eye Treatment Self-Care at Home Rest and ice applied early after the injury help to decrease swelling and pain. * Ice helps to decrease swelling by constricting blood vessels, by decreasing fluid accumulation, and by cooling and numbing the area. Apply ice for 20 minutes an hour every hour while awake, for the first 24 hours. Ice should not be applied directly to the injury. To avoid potential cold injury to the site, wrap the ice in a cloth or use a commercial ice pack. A bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a cloth makes a good ice pack. * Protect the area from further injury. Stay away from athletic or other possibly injurious activities until after the eye has healed.

No, it has nothing to do with the fact that it's meat. It's just that most meat comes from a freezer or refrigerator so it's cold. Cold helps keep the swelling down, hence using cold meat. An ice pack wrapped in a thick towel is just as good...and probably more sanitary.

I think it's the cold that helps reduce swelling and alleviate a little of the pain. Raw meat stays cold longer than a wet cloth. Ice directly on the skin will numb it (more pain); covering ice with a cloth ends up drippy.

the only reason it helps is because the steak which is cold is a substitue for a bag of ice and anything else thats cold that can keep swelling down
