The Lump Did Not Go Flat?
hello doctor .. I want to ask, my child is 4thn, some time ago my child got hit by a motorcycle and fell on his forehead a big and blue bump, two days it had begun to deflate a little, now it was 10 days before the bumps had disappeared “, why? how many days do you need to get rid of the lump? And what medicine is good for getting rid of the lump? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, it is of course necessary to make sure in advance that the collision experienced by your child does not cause injury to the skull and does not cause bleeding inside the head first. If indeed your child has been seen by a doctor and it has been confirmed that there are no such injuries, then the possibility of a lump in the head did occur due to rupture of blood vessels under the skin (hematoma). Hematoma under the skin is generally harmless and can disappear by itself without the need for certain therapies. Length of disappearance can range from 1-4 weeks depending on the size of the hematoma. If indeed the lump on your child's head is big enough, then the disappearance can indeed take weeks.
To help speed up the healing of the hematoma due to the impact, you can compress the lump on the child's head with a cold compress (for the first 1-2 days), followed by a warm compress. If your child experiences symptoms such as heavy headaches, vomiting, loss of consciousness, or other neurological symptoms (for example, impaired vision, impaired balance, etc.), immediately take him to the hospital.
So much information from me, Semgoa enough to answer
