Brief Answer:
Can you send a picture??

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

After an injury, skin tissue that is damaged get flaked off during the course of time. It will shed off to be replaced by a fresh healthy skin. Based on your description, this is what could be happening.

Absence of pain and reduction is swelling are good signs of recovery. But I would like to review images of the affected area. Can you upload good quality picture of the affected area?

Awaiting your response...
