I bruised my knuckle and swollowing still persist after one month.

Hello, I punched a wall accidentally and bruised my knuckles. My hand was swollen and after a week I went to see a doctor he did a x ray and told me my hand is allright and i should put ice on swollen knucke. After a month I use my hand without a problem no pain no problems. I used a lot of ice on it. But my knuckle is still swollen and larger than the other one and when I push on it with force it hurts a little bit. What should I do for my knuckle to look normal again? Thank you.

Hi Simon
I think you should just be patient as you obviously didn’t break anything but had some soft tissue damage which can take some time to heal
