I got my lower leg caught and bruised it pretty severely. I put vaseline on the skin (once I could tolerate touch) to prevent the brusing coming to the skin (yes this does work, really well in fact). However, this was weeks ago. The bruise is under the skin and is very lumpy and itches. Yeah, I work for an ortho, but hate calling him unless I have to. Is that normal? It's not really painful, but it is really annoying. It's a little sore and there is some redness, but I'm not sure if that's just from me scratching at it.
