Stepped on a rock

I jumped out of a boat bare-footed onto a rock 1 week ago. The arch turned black and blue and I have a painful lump. The discoloration went way, but it still has a lump and is sore. I know this needs time to heal. How long does healing normally take? and what is the best method of treatment to promote healing? I iced it within the first 24 hours. the past two evenings I soaked it in epsom salts with hot water.
