Touching a swelling makes it worse? ?

I recently smacked the side of my face on my bed frame before bed and woke up with it slightly swollen. The entire day I had been poking at it and massaging it and it ended up doubling in size and left bruising. Thought massaging would have made it better? why did it get worse?

    It may have gotten worse even if you didn't massage it.
