Contusion: Can be minor soft tissue injury without break in the skin, or major such as when being run over by a vehicle. Generally, it produces discolouration of the skin due to collection of blood
Abrasion:In this wound, epide1mis of the skin is scraped away exposing the dermis. They are painful as dermal nerve endings are exposed. These wounds need cleaning, antibiotics and proper dressings.
Haematoma:This refers to collection of blood usually following injury. It can occur spontaneously in patients who have bleeding tendencies such as haemophilia.
Depending upon the site, it can be subcutaneous, intramuscular or even subperiosteal. A knee joint haematoma may need to be aspirated followed by application of compression bandage. Small haematomas get absorbed. If not, they can get infected.
