Injured the knee, scan show edematous skin and subcutaneaous tissue. Any cure available with pills ?

I fell down from a bike 15 days back and got injured in my knee . Now it is paining much and took x-ray and scan. In x-ray, the bones look normal and no complaints found. Hence took a scan and it says that Skin and subcutaneaous tissue appear edematous. Haematoma measuring 27.6 x 7.4 mm seen in prepatellar region, Is there any minor procedure to remove the blood clots or is there any possibility to cure with tablets. pls suggest.

Hello Thanks for your query.You had a injury to your knee joint 15 days back Your x ray does not show ant\y bony injury however there is a small haematoma in prepatellar region.This can get absorbed naturally over a period of 2 to 3 weeks.You have to take antibiotics to avoid it being getting infected. Simultaneously take some anti inflammatory drugs to reduce the edema of the subcutaneous tissue.
