A question first:  Did you apply anything to the bruise like antibiotic ointment?

If not, it is possible if you fell outside that there was dirt of cement that were embedded in the area of trauma. Two weeks is late for an infection, but an allergy or a foreign body response can take that long.

Please see your dermatologist for an evaluation.
