What causes a painful bump under skin after a bad bruise?

8 year old fell into pool 10 days ago hitting inner upper thigh on deck . Left a big bruise which is gone now but there is a bump about the size of a grape under her skin where the bruise was . She says it hurts and the area is warm to the touch. Could it be a blood clot?Should we go to the emergency room?

Hi,

After reading your post, I would suggest that you should give hot fomentation on swelling. If the symptoms persists, get her clinically examined and investigated by your doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
