Doctor :   Hi, Thank you for posting your query on ATD. I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You have two large bruise. These are subcutaneous Hematomas. These are likely to resolve itself in due course of time itself. Nothing to worry about them. Thrombopbobe gel local application without rubbing is helpful in resolving them. Sometimes these does not resolve then aspiration with wide bore needle may be helpful. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. Hope your query get answered Wishing you a good health. Take care.
