Redness and small lump formed on leg after hitting hard. How to remove it?

Hello! I got hit on my leg (above the knee and thight) really hard about 1 hour ago and it immediately became red. Now the red is gone, but I also have small lumps , like tiny ondulations, on the site of the smack... like I have cellulitis or something (and I absolutely don t have cellulitis). Is it permanent? What should I do? Thank you for your attention! Catarina
