bruise won't go away

i have a bruise above my knee for like 4-6 weeks now.

i got this injury wen i decided to race with my friend in the school hallway(yee kinda dumb). im a pretty fast runner 10 seconds for 100 metre dash but anyways wen i was racing, at da last minute and slipped and smashed my knee full speed on da wall. after awhile, da bruise grew so big, my knee was just ALL RED and i compared it to my other knee and its like 2,3 times bigger.i smashed my top knee on da wall and da bruise just completely surrounded my knee.i was limping on my leg for da next 5 days. within da next week or so it was healingfast.

today da bruise is still there but much smaller now. its about 2 toonies big?? or so and its been like this for about 2 weeks. how can i find a way to fix this up fast since im about to play in sports teams

Re: bruise won't go away

Did you ice it until the swelling went down? As in ice it to reduce swelling and heat on it for pain. Bruise should be fading, but there's no fast fix.
