Hello Nurfikriana, thank you for asking.
Accidents involving motor vehicles such as you experience, will generally cause blunt trauma (injury due to blunt objects). Blunt trauma can be mild to severe, depending on the size of the collision. Injury can be in the form of bruises, abrasions, swelling, open sores, cracks or broken bones, joint shifts, concussions, and so on. Of course the more severe the blunt trauma, the healing process will take even longer.
We do not know how severe your condition is. If the collision during an accident is quite severe, it is only natural that you still experience swelling. Damage and bleeding of skin and muscle tissue, takes several days to improve. The improvement also occurs slowly, not immediately you take the medicine and then a day later the swelling disappears. The healing process takes time.
The thing you notice is, does the swelling get bigger, are there other symptoms such as dizziness or severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and so on. If you get symptoms of this deterioration, then immediately see a doctor. The doctor will determine whether you have moderate or severe head injuries.
Optimal rest. Avoid driving the vehicle if you have a headache or have a disturbed vision. Clean the wound regularly.
That's the explanation that I can give. Hope this helps you. Regards.
