Ouch!: When you bump your forehead a large knot forms from bleeding under the skin (hematoma). If you had no loss of consciousness, vomiting, dizziness, blurry vision, fluid coming out of your ears or nose, you are likely okay If you feel worse at any time, with any of these symptoms, even if in a month get checked quick. Otherwise if you feel fine, except a sore spot, you are likely okay. Tylenol (acetaminophen) OK
