Nothing can be said without examining and seeing the investigations done. The best way is to take the investigations and the patient to the doctor and get him properly examined, he will be in a better position to guide you better. Because without examining the patient nothing can be advised.

The way you are giving the description , It seems there is infection inthe sucuteous tissue, the area is warm to feel as compared to normal place. Probably there is developement of "cellulitis". For which you must consult your Doctor.

Arnica will heal any internal injury, bruise and removes pain.

i banged my elbow over a week ago. There was little pain after the initial hit, but the elbow swelled like I had a tennis ball under my skin. The following day I had a bruise extending to my wrist and up to my armpit. Little pain,some tenderness in the forearm and swelling at the wrist. Now the swelling has subsided and the huge dark bruise is fading,but I m getting pain, mostly at night,in cycles, that is intense enough to wake me.

My husband fell down in the bathroom couple of weeks back and hit his elbow. He was in pain for couple of days, and he took advil and he was fine. He has no pain now, unless he push his elbow hard, but he has swelling like a water bag on his elbow and it is quite visible. I will appreciate you advice in this matter.

Hi, I got hit with a baseball on the inner part of my arm just above the elbow. It was black and blue and slightly swollen. Now the swelling went down and I noticed a small lump on the inner part of the elbow slightly smaller than a dime. The elbow still hurts slightly when I play baseball. This happened 10 days ago.
