I mean another couple of weeks time.There is blood under the skin that is causing it.Your body will take sometime to slowly resorb this.So I would not worry whatsoever.
Expert:  Dr SH replied 7 months ago.
The time it takes to go away also depends on the severity of the injury.In some cases such as yours it may take more time but it WILL eventually go away.Not anything that will require surgery.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
