Hi! As it is already around 4 days after fall, and only bruise is the symptom nothing to worry as it will take around 10 days to clear up. Can give cold compress three times a day for around 10 to 15 minutes. If any other symptoms like excruciating pain or restriction in moment pls consult. Take care.
