Hello, sorry I want to ask my son, a one-year-old boy, who fell while sitting in a chair and then hit his head on the ceramic floor. I was worried whether the 1-year-old baby’s skull was strong and hard enough to withstand the collision because I was afraid that cracking would occur. Please answer thanks

Hello MLida,


Head collision is one thing that can be dangerous, especially if the impact occurs violently. In a 1-year-old child, the skull bones are already hard, but this also depends on the collisions that occur where the impact can trigger head injuries ranging from mild to severe.


It should be noted that after colliding, a child faints, becomes inactive, there is a bluish appearance under the eyes or behind the ear, there is severe swelling in the head, the child appears to be in pain or vomiting, an examination is necessary.


It is also a good idea to check the condition of the child after the collision to assess his condition whether there is interference either in the head or skull bones either by X-ray examination or scanning with CT scan if needed. Hit the head with cold and warm compresses to reduce pain and can give paracetamol to reduce pain that arises.


May be useful.
