Fell from steps, injured shin, bleeding, swelling in knee. Red, numb, itchy spot remain. Cure?

I fell down steps and injured my right shin several weeks ago. My leg hit a post and it bled a good bit and swelled up from my knee to my ankle. Now the swelling is gone but a dry red, numb yet itchy spot about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide remains below where I was originally cut. What is it? How long will it remain? And how do I treat it?
