How to cure muscle pain and skin rash after a hit?

I was skateboarding and my board hit a ridge in the sidewalk to I flew forward off my board and slammed into my Tibialis Anterior muscle. I have excruciating pain only when I stand up and it comes in waves, I cannot step on it at all for a few steps and then I can for a few, its alarming to me that its inconsistent. I also have some intense road rash over the muscle.

It might due to injury to connective tissues and muscles along the edge of the shin bone become inflamed., . Pain usually goes away with rest. It also helps to apply ice, take anti-inflammatories, and avoid anything that causes pain. Once pain lessens, stretch and strengthen your lower leg. To prevent future problems, wear supportive shoes and avoid running on hard surfaces.
