Hello Rully, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The severity of the injury to your child's head depends on the size and severity of the frame on the head and the height at which the frame fell. If indeed the frame includes a large and heavy frame and falls from a high enough place, the head injury experienced can be quite severe. In this case, the child should be taken to the hospital for a CT scan to see if there is bleeding inside the head or not. If the frame is small, not too heavy, or falls from a place that is not too high, then the possibility of a head injury will be less severe.
You can also pay attention to the symptoms exhibited by your child. It is recommended that in the first 24-48 hours, you notice the following symptoms:
decreased awareness, for example the child continues to sleep and cannot be awakened, continues to be drowsy
there is a severe headache
there is nausea and vomiting that spray
weakness in the limbs
confusion and agitation (anxiety and restlessness)
If you find these symptoms, then you should IMMEDIATELY take your child to the hospital.
If there are no such symptoms, it is likely that your child is not suffering from a serious head injury. For lumps on his head, you can compress the child's head with a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling that appears. Perform cold compresses for up to 2-3 days, after which you can continue with warm compresses.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
