Hello Farah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A trauma to certain parts of the body such as the result of a fall from a motorbike is highly recommended to be checked immediately to the hospital emergency room after the incident occurs to be examined carefully in areas that have been hit if there are other conditions that accompany bruising in addition to tissue such as fractures, lung injury, muscle tear, or joint injury.
Even though the incident has occurred 1 day, for your condition it is still recommended to be examined further by a doctor for physical evaluation and determining whether you need another examination to ascertain your current injury and to determine drug treatment or medical treatment that should be given.
In the meantime, in addition to seeing your doctor further, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol in accordance with the dosage listed on the package to help reduce pain until there is further advice from your doctor. It is not advisable to take other medications besides paracetamol and medications prescribed by your doctor.
It is also not advisable to massage the area that has swelling and pain because it can worsen the injury.
I hope this helps.
