Fell and hurt butt, huge bruise. Treatment?

I slipped and fell on my left butt cheek last night. It hurt really bad and I neglected to ice it. It was fine this morning but I noticed that it hurt when I sat on it. I went home to check on it and I have a horrible huge bruise that wasn't there this morning. I'm icing it now but it's been almost 24 hours. What should I do to treat it and should I see a doctor? Can I also work out?
