Bump on periosteum hind canon, will it go away?

I was fox hunting with my boy a couple of months ago. He hit a jump hard with his hind leg and busted the carbon fiber on the front of his Delmar boot (glad he was wearing his boots). He ended up with a brushed periosteum and was never lame or sore, but the bump left there was warm for about a month. The bump is slight, right on the middle front about 3 inches long, one inch wide and raised a few millimeters. Have any of you fox hunters or eventers ever had a similar injury to your horse? And if so, did the bump ever go away, and how long did it take?
Thanks :)

DMSO would have helped a lot when it was fresh. It is less likely to help now although it is possible.

If it is cold and hard, you can possibly take it off by applying 'Reducine' with a toothbrush. It looks like black tar and comes in a 16 oz. blue can. It will put a very light blister on a knot like this and after about 3 or 4 sets of applications, most knots disappear.

I have removed old splints the size of an egg with it. I have removed big knots that came from a kick in a pasture. I have had very good results with it.

You clip the hair short and put in on every day with a toothbrush until the skin gets sore and the horse does not want to you do it. Then, you wait a week or so and start doing it again. I have had huge splints completely gone in about 6 to 8 weeks of on and off use of it.

It is cheap and can be purchased from any of the mail order places like Jeffers or Valley Vet. It keeps forever.
