Scratches On The Head?
doctor… I want to ask this afternoon my child fell from the gate his hair fell out of his head blisters I took him to the doctor about why but the doctor said it’s okay, I asked if he needed an X-ray? Dr. said no, but I’m afraid because I’ve been beaten twice before using encouragement by my youngest child until it bleeds, now it’s falling on its head until it’s blistered I’m afraid what’s the solution and the cure?rnPlease answerrnThank you 🙏☺
Hello Dian praise. L,
After a head trauma, several possibilities that can occur include:
Bruises on the head Scratches or lacerations on the scalp (scalp) Damage to the skull bones such as fractures Disorders of the brain
X-ray examination is a supporting examination carried out to evaluate the skull (skull) such as the possibility of fractures in the bones, but please note that this examination is carried out based on indications that can be found after consultation and physical examination. It is better to consult in advance about your desire to do X-rays on your little one with the doctor who did the examination first because X-rays are examinations that provide radiation exposure to the little one's body so that if necessary it can be done to evaluate your child's condition.
Take care of the cleanliness of the wounds experienced on the head, in addition to taking medication regularly according to the advice of the examining doctor. If your child has nausea, severe vomiting, fever or persistent headache, immediately take your child to the hospital for examination and help. Generally, blisters in children heal faster than adults, so you don't have to worry. Continue to provide the best nutritional intake for children for their development and growth.
I hope this information is helpful.
