Blue Color Appears On The Face After The Child Falls From The Stairs
Night, 2 days ago my child fell down the stairs, and experienced a bump on the forehead precisely above the eyebrow, and the next day the lump was slightly deflated but under the eyes \ that is dangerous ?
Hello Farah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help explain.
The deep blue color that appears after a fall or collision is caused by bleeding. Bleeding occurs due to rupture of blood vessels in the skin after collision. Initially will be reddish, swollen and hot, then slowly turns into bluish. This condition is called a hematoma or bruising. In general, bruising disappears within 3-7 days, depending on how wide the area is involved. The following are some of the treatments that we can do at home:
Do a cold compress 3-4 times a day, on the part that has bruises After passing from 3 days, do a compress with a warm towel 3-4 times a day Avoid massage or massage the bruised area If you feel pain in the impact area, take pain relievers that are sold free at the pharmacy, for example paracetamol. For the time being your child is still being treated by himself at home, due to an outbreak of the corona virus. If within 7 days the pain does not go away, or is getting worse, the eye area is bleeding, or vision disappears suddenly, then consult an ophthalmologist for further treatment.
Hope this helps, thank you.
