The Forehead Bone Becomes Sunken With Swollen Eyes After The Child Falls Down The Stairs?
Hello, my son fell down the stairs and his forehead bone dipped inward and there was a slight change in the shape of his head in the front but my son didn’t feel any pain.rnThe swelling and bruising started to disappear after I applied the medicine but instead caused his eyes to swell and turn blue, is it dangerous? ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After being hit by a fall, a sunken forehead can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. The cause of this basin can be due to:
Edema (seepage of interstitial fluid) Hematoma (blood clot under the skin) Fracture of the skull Swelling and blueness around the child's eyes can indicate an injury to the eye component, but it can also be caused by an injury to the brainstem. The second condition can certainly have a fatal impact.
Therefore, you should check your child immediately to the doctor, especially if other danger signs are found, such as decreased consciousness, vomiting, visual disturbances, or seizures. An in-depth evaluation is needed, not only from interviews and physical examinations, but also radiological examinations, such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. That way, the best treatment can be done according to the condition your child is experiencing.
At this time, you should minimize excessive movement in your child's head area. Avoid massaging the sunken forehead area. Elevate the head slightly when lying down to help reduce swelling. Compress the swollen and bluish eye with cold water to stop the bleeding, then replace it with a warm compress so that the swelling subsides.
Hope it helps ya..
