Hi, Kelly,
Thanks for query.
Due to hard hitting there is formation of hematoma on the part.
Now as blood is oozing there are all chances of having infection.
So go for antibiotic medicine and anti inflammatory medicine course after consulting your doctor.
Do regular dressing with antibiotic cream.
Ok and bye.
