Lumps On The Head Of A Child Due To Collision Never Deflated?
I want to ask, ank I was 2 years old 3 months when I was jumping on the back of the head, I was close to the edge of the wall, and directly on the edge of the wall, in cm the condition of the scalp immediately bumped the reaction of my ankle, I was crying a lot but then I was really sick of the thrombopob ointment. I ask, how come the lump isn’t flat, it’s already 1 week Kurleb … do I need to see a doctor, but there are signs of fuss etc. Cm I was worried why I was flat out afraid why … what should I do?
Good evening, thanks for the question
A child's history of head banging should be suspected of having a serious head injury if there are symptoms such as:
- Throw up
- Exit fluid or blood from the nose or ears
- There is a history of post-event fainting
- Children often seem sleepy
- No longer active as usual
- Complaining of headache
If the child's condition is good and there are no significant complaints, chances are only limited to minor trauma to the skin, causing a bump.
Lumps can be due to tissue swelling alone or the formation of blood clots under the skin. If a small lump is usually less than one week it will decrease. If the lump is relatively large, especially if there is a blood clot in it, healing will take about 1-2 weeks.
To speed healing, cold compresses can be performed in the area where there is a lump. If the complaint does not go away you should consult a doctor so that further testing can be done.
That's all, hope you can help
