My first, and almost only go-to, remedy for hickeys is dmso gel. It works as an anti-inflammatory and works within a day. I buy mine online but I believe you can also buy it at a bait n tackle shop or walgreens. Just rub it onto the hickey (or bruise) and let it sit. If it begins to itch wash it off with water. Only apply it once a day, simply because it will irritate the skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Be careful with dmso, it acts as a vehicle to bring substances across the skin barrier, and it does this without specificity, so the dyes in your shirt, the leftover detergent, whatever skin products you use, your perfume/cologne, or the toxicants in your environment will be brought through your skin. This stuff can be dangerous - so use caution.
