Have green swelling top part foot, purple bruise, after fall

Hi, two days ago I was in dance and made and jump and I accidentally fell on the top part of my foot instead of the ball of my feet, in that moment it hurt a lot but then almost nothing, now the top part of my feet is swollen with some purple bruises and the swollen part has kind of a green tone which is a bruise but very lightly, it doesn't hurts but I don't know if it is just going to go away. thank you

Thanks for writing to us.
The green swelling and a purple bruise after an injury are due to a hematoma formation and an infection in the area is also likely. You need to have oral antibiotics to control the infection.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
