In brief: Natural Process

The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly.
Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Keep it covered with an occlusive dressing changed every other day and avoid further trauma. It will heal very quickly.
