Thanks for posting your query.
You have provided with very short description regarding your problem. You need to share a few more details like since when is the pain and swelling present, any history of injury, any treatment received till now, etc for a more detailed opinion.
It seems to be related to an infected hematoma in the area. A physical examination is necessary to detect the extent of the swelling and bruise. Systemic antibiotics are needed to control the infection in the area.
Please do consult your primary physician for appropriate management.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
