Bruise on calf, sore welts. Cause?

I have a bruise on my calf that originally looked like I had been struck by a racketball. Some of the skin circling the bruise has hardened like a welt. Some of the welted area is sore to the touch. I don t remember being struck or striking anything that would cause this bruise. I noticed this bruise around the end of June. Is is not dark in color or expanding, just seems to remain in the same condition.

I would suggest you to skin specialist to rule out any contact dermatitis. Also I would suggest you to do hot water fomentation and Brufen tablet . Avoid walking fast or standing for prolong time. I also want to suggest you to take compression bandage .
