    Re: could this be a hematoma?

    Usually at the time of injury, they recommend treating with ice only to reduce swelling of the tissues and reduce the bleed.But after the first few days, you can apply heat as it is much more soothing.as long as the active bleeding has stopped.I am sure that at this point,with all the time that has passed from the initial injury,your real 'active" bleeding has stopped for now.a good rule of thumb always ice an injury first as it will not harm you,but if you use heat too soon, you will possibly cause alot of problems.I will usually use ice for just about anything but if it makes the pain worse instead of better, then I will try the heat.But never right after the injury.Hope you finally heal soon.Marcia
