General & Family Physician 's  Response
You have a haematoma, which is a blood clot under your skin. It is a self-limiting condition. The injury caused small vessels under your skin to burst, there was a little blood flow which later clotted below the skin itself. Haematoma generally resolves spontaneously, without any treatment in 1-2 weeks. If you are in a lot of pain, you can take some Oral NSAIDs like Ibuprofen(Brufen) or Diclofenac(Voveran) for the pain. No other treatment is necessary.
Hope you get better soon.
