Thanks for the image Julie

It seems like a bruise and actually sometime the clot under the skin do get organized and give such kind of appearance to the skin

It does not look anything serious at all

Its good you get an examination by the dermatologist but as I said nothing to be worried of it is just a organised blood under the skin or bruise

Thank you will this ever go away as I've been using arnica cream for a couple of weeks and the outer area is yellowing, I'm so concerned thank you

Yes it can go away completely as normal response of body can help in clearing it out

But once again definitely not something to be scared of
