Suggest treatment for bruising in leg below the knee

I fell in a hole yesterday and twisted my left ankle and right leg below the knee. My ankle isn t too bad but below the knee is bruised and when I move or walk I have a sharp burning sensation. I am 64 years old and had both my knees replaced about 6 years ago.

Dermatologist 's  Response
You should take serratiopeptidase aceclofenac combination for few days as it will reduce the pain and swelling. You should also do hot fermentation but if the condition doesnt improve or worsen you need to consult an orthopaedician for detailed evaluation.

I fell over about 2-3 weeks ago, landing painfully on a rock (I work in the countryside) on my shin bone, just below my right knee. Although the bruise has now disappeared, I have a painful bumpy lump where the bruise was. My leg goes not hurt to walk/ run only painful to touch

Son landed on his knee d/t trip and fall playing basketball. Half dollar sized bruise below knee cap outside of knee. Pins and needle sensation above knee cap interior side diagonally up from bruise when he bends it. Ice application right after injury. No pain when immobile knee straight. He can bare weight. No swelling redness or heat. Happened yesterday, still walks straight legged to avoid pain. Tylenol has been beneficial. Do you feel xray is necessary and what other treatment would you suggest?
