Bruise and swelling in the shin after an injury. Lump formation. Itching and irritation in the area. What is the reason?

Hello, on December 17th , I miscalculated kicking a chair, and smacked the lower part of right shin instead. I had a very nasty bruise , and mild swelling around the area. it wasn t too painful, but it took a while to heal. The bruise itself is now healed, it took around ten days, but the bruised area is raised, like a solid lump. It s been three weeks now, and the injury is starting to itch and irritate, and i have some pain in the area, and some in my right foot , near the ankle. I was wondering if you could help me out.

From history it seems that you might be having some injury on shin with hematoma.
Apply ice pack for few days.
go for one antibiotic medicine course for 3-5 days as there is likely of having some infection on the part.
Ok and take care.
