Hi and thanks for the details.Getting a bruise after a fall is quite common, however, blisters are signs of ischemic changes of the skin. This is most likely a big hematoma (collection of blood) that has caused pressure necrosis of the overlying skin. Other than that, underlying hip fractures need to be ruled out since this is painful and has caused bruising - both signs of fractures.I would suggest that you go to an Urgent Care or an ER as soon as possible to have this addressed.Let me know if you have further questions.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating by clicking on stars on top right corner.Wish you good health.
