Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
It appears that you have developed a "hematoma" - which is a localized collection of blood after an injury
. I would suggest the following:
- Apply cold fermentation to the area to decrease the inflammation
- Do not massage
the area or try to squeeze or break the swelling
- You can take an anti-inflammatory / analgesic
medication to reduce the inflamation and pain.
- Hematomas are self-resolving and your swelling should subside gradually in 1 to 2 weeks
- If you develop any signs like sudden increase in size, redness
, pus discharge form the swelling or fever
, then you need to seek urgent medical attention.
