Brief Answer:
Take tylenol only for pain control!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed this information fully and the attached image. If vision is all intact, there is nothing to be worried about. The blood would be resorbed within 7-10days all by itself and needs for specific treatment for that. If you are in pain, tylenol for pain control is okay. There is no need for antibiotics at this time as well. Cleansing alone would suffice.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if there are any further concerns or onset of new symptoms.
