Head Bumped Due To Fall When Playing Futsal?
a few days ago I fell on my left forehead I was still conscious and then a few hours later I vomited as much as 2x the next day I went to the clinic and the doctor suggested only a rest at home by taking the doctor’s prescription drug. from my nose And until now I still have the effect of bruising on the cheek near the nose Is that normal?
Impact on the head can result in head injury. Head injuries can consist of a number of conditions ranging from minor head injuries to severe.
Minor head injuries are usually still conscious, no fainting, and may be accompanied by headaches or pain in the area affected. While in moderate to severe head injuries, there is a decrease in consciousness.
From your situation, if after a collision occurs on the head and there is no loss of consciousness, then maybe your head injury is included in a minor head injury. Is it true that you have vomited blood? or just a little blood coming out of the nose and mouth?
If indeed you experience a lot of vomiting of blood, then this may be caused by a tear in the blood vessels of the throat or digestive tract, so this requires further examination by a doctor. To determine whether there is a tear in the blood vessels of the throat area or not, it is necessary to examine such as ultrasound, or MRI.
But if it only draws a little blood from the nose or mouth, then this may be a normal thing, and only requires outpatient treatment and observation. The effect of bruising on the cheeks disappears in about 2 weeks. You simply compress with cold water / ice on the bruised area. Avoid taking any medication, rest first. Avoid strenuous physical activity.
