What causes a strange bump after bruise?

My 3 year old son fell into a corner of a wall. When it first happened you could see a bruised line and then a bump formed and a bruise. After all swelling went down and the bump went away he now has a small dent in his skin. Will this ever go away? Are there any treatments that could help? Thank you.

Hello,

The bump is normal after the injury. You can give you son Tylenol to relieve the swelling. I also suggest using cold compresses for local application. The bump will go away gradually, so you should not be worried.

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

Regards,
