Thanks for posting your query.

As bruise and swelling persist over XXXXXXX even after a week, you should go for an xray to rule out any bony injury. Also as the area get infected, it needs antibiotic cover and cleaning of wound. So I suggest you to get it evaluated by your doctor for appropriate treatment.

Hope this will help you. Let me know if you have any more concern.
Please accept my answer if you have no further query.

Wishing you speedy recovery.
