Maybe: The first thing I have to say is that of the hitting incident was with malice, you need another boyfriend. If you were playing around, then yes, you could have a minor injury that requires no treatment. A major injury would likely be noticed by severe pain or swelling. If this is the case, go to an urgent care center or ER for an evaluation. Hope this helps!
