Question Bruise and dent on my leg

First time poster here. I actually have two different "injuries". First, about 4 months ago I dropped a big, unopened box of kitty litter on my shin. It fell out of the car onto my leg, corner first. The box is more than 20lbs. My shin was swollen and bruised for a good while. Well, now, the bruise is still there and I have a dent in my leg where the box hit. Underneath the skin feels 'rough' for lack of a better word. Any suggestions on this?

Second, more than 5 years ago I was using a dolly to move things and hit my big toenail with it, taking it completely off. It grew back after a while, but now the toenail is horrible. There's a big bump in the middle of where my toenail should grow, so the top of the toenail, if it grows, doesn't "adhere" to my skin. It just sort of grows into the top of my toe, burying itself in my skin, but I can pull it up away from my toe. I constantly have to cut my toenail, keeping it half a toenail to avoid pain. Is there anything I can do about this? It's really hard to explain, so I hope this is understandable. Any suggestions are very welcome for either problem!
