Hi,

This suggests a contusion there. Try taking an analgesic like Ibuprofen for 3-5 days. Also, give rest to the area and keep the limb elevated. If no improvement in 3 days, kindly consult your doctor, as we might need to have an X-ray too.

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

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
