Handling Of Wounds On The Child’s Head After A Fall?
At noon my son’s head leaked to stumble. What good is given if he doesn’t stop crying. And I am afraid that there are internal wounds despite the small tear
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Do you mean by "head leak" is active bleeding from open wounds after the head? If you really mean that, we recommend that you immediately take your child to the nearest doctor so that his condition can be evaluated and given the necessary treatment as soon as possible. A child's crying that is difficult to calm can be a sign of decreased consciousness so it needs to be checked by a doctor immediately.
Child's head trauma is often caused by traffic accidents, accidents while playing bicycle, falling, or due to domestic violence. Head trauma that causes bleeding from open wounds needs to be treated carefully because the secondary impact of reduced blood volume and oxygen delivery to the brain on head trauma can have a bad effect on children's brain growth and development. Even unhygienic management of open wounds risks exposing a child to infection.
Do not delay to take your child to the doctor if the bleeding does not stop, the child vomits continuously, vomiting is more frequent, convulsions, and decreased consciousness. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
