Should I apply heat or ice to long scrape/bruise on shinbone to ankle? Should healing lotion be applied afterward if skin is not broken.

You should use ice instead of heat on the bruise. Heat is usually recommended in serious and chronic conditions. You can use healing lotion afterwards but only if the skin is not broken.

Alternate hot and cold, I doubt lotion would do anything if the skin is not broken, but it can't hurt anything.
