Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Head bumps when it can cause bruising and / or swelling / bumps. This characterizes the post-traumatic inflammation process. Usually the lump is accompanied by pain. The symptoms of inflammation can last for several hours to several days after headache. Along with the post-traumatic recovery process, complaints should be reduced from day to day.
Because the trauma incident occurred 2 weeks ago but the bump on the head is still present, we recommend that you check your child to the doctor or pediatrician so that you can evaluate the cause of the lump on the head and provide treatment that may be needed. Did not rule out that the lump was indeed associated with a history of head trauma 2 weeks ago, but it might also be caused by other causes that require prior evaluation by a doctor, such as a dermoid cyst, atheroma cyst, lipoma, or ganglion cyst.
As a suggestion, you are encouraged to continue breastfeeding according to the wishes of the child (on demand) and complementary foods that are nutritionally balanced regularly. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
