Mama to two sweet boys, a 7yo and a toddler .
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. - Albert Einstein
From a mom of a boy with hemophilia -- we've seen a lot of really bad hematomas over here. I find that Arnica oil works better than homeopathic arnica for getting rid of hematomas. I actually do a combination of arnica oil and castor oil (no heat). Castor oil is good at helping the body reabsorb the blood. You'll find the arnica oil in the herb section or in the first aid section. The cream is still homeopathic; don't get the cream; you want the oil.
Comfrey poultices will also help tremendously, if you have access to any fresh comfrey. Plantain poultices will also help-- you probably have plantain growing in your yard; google it to see what it looks like.
Good old ice will also help.
Internally, nettle will help, although I think fresh nettle juice is the most helpful, and that's a mail-order thing.
I agree that he really needs to rest!
