In brief: Gentle ice compress

Ice compresses may help.
Manual lymphatic drainage may help. Gentle pressure may help. However if you have a hematoma, aspiration may be advised.

In brief: Ice, arnica

Ice applied 20 minutes at a time helps.
Arnica and bromelian are homeopathic medications that help with swelling and bruising.

In brief: Time

It will take time.
If it feels like there is fluid under it then see a doctor for possible needle drainage.
