Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you with your question.

I am afraid you didn't scratch your skin only, but bruised the bursa below it. You will need to see a surgeon to find out if a local therapy will help, or if the bursa has to be removed. I hope that this won't be necessary, but if so, it's only a little operation.

I wish you the very best!
