Can you give more details on this.
Thank you for coming back online.
The swelling you are having on right elbow after a fall is most likely because of hematoma from the injury.
A hematoma is a localized collection of blood outside the blood vessels usually in liquid form within the tissue.The fluid leaking is this one only.
A hematoma usually is not a cause for concern.Following will help you greatly:Ice the area on and off. Put ice in a plastic bag, wrap the bag in a towel.Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Wrap the icepack in a towel.The cold reduces the blood flow to the area and therefore limits bleeding into the skin and reduces the size of the hematoma.
So bot***** *****ne is there is nothing to worry about this hematoma from the injury.Just keep an eye of observation & apply ice as described above.
Hope this helped
