Hi,
This require no treatment.Just leave it alone.
It will clear on its own and completely disappear in a 2-3 week's time.
If it bursts the you could apply an anti-bacterial cream.Do not attempt to puncture it as it may lead to a secondary infection.
The color of the lesion may keep changing, but this is normal.The blood accumulated is getting broken down and eliminated from the body.

I punctured my blood clot and it kept on bleeding. Now there's an even bigger clot. How do I remove this?!
