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.

Dear friend,
Take a X-ray of injured arm and forarm,consult a orthopedican for opinion. If everything is fine then Homeopathy can help you, consult a Qualified homeopathic doctor in your area or take homeopathic medicine Arnica 30, 4 Pills 2 hourly for 1 week and he will be fine soon.
Arnica will heal any internal injury, bruise and removes pain.
Thank you
