If you experience a collision in the head, especially without a head protector, you should immediately check yourself so that an evaluation of the conditions experienced will be assessed later on awareness, memory of events, interviews about the perceived condition, physical examination and also the necessary supporting examinations starting from X-ray examination, CT scan or other tests are needed.
Need to watch out if in the event of fainting, vomiting, especially vomiting that spurts or projectiles, severe headaches, fainting then conscious and then fainting again, impaired vision, discharge from the ear or nose or pain in the neck and other body parts such as spreading it is necessary to immediately get treatment at the nearest health facility because it can be an emergency that can be life threatening.
If later the examination has been done and the results are good, to reduce pain in the lump or hematoma due to collisions can be done by compressing the painful part using ice or cold pack, taking pain relievers, avoid using a narrow helmet or can rest for some time if conditions are more severe .
