Bite on arm, bruised, rock hard, painful. Worry?

Hi. My boyfriend bit me pretty hard on my upper arm about 3 weeks ago. it left a pretty bad bruise thats still there, but now under the bruise there seems to be a knot. that kinda feels like a rock, and it still hurts to the touch. Is this something i should be worried about? My mom says it could be a blood clot or a torn muscle or something.

You have developed a bruise over your skin due to injury,,,Just apply thrombophobe or hirudoid cream over the affected area..
Thrombophob ointment contains Heparin-Benzyl Nicotinate which improves the blood supply and prevents clots. so it will help in faster clearing of the clotted blood...And you can take vitamin C orally for rapid healing..
Hope it helps
