How long does a severe black eye take to heal? My son was hit with a stick in the eye a month ago and still has a black eye.
Several weeks: He was probably not hit in the eye itself with a stick or things would be a lot worse. I assume he had a thorough eye examination. The black eye is caused by a bleeding around the eye, similar to a black and blue spot on the skin. It may take several weeks to clear.See 1 more doctor answer
What to do if your baby gets a black eye? My baby fell off her chair, I caught her but she still hit the other chair next to her it look red &swollen
Bruise: Not sure about the age of your child. Glad that you caught her before she hit her head on the floor. Place an ice-pack over the affected area on the face. For children above the age 6 months you can give a dose of children's Motrin (ibuprofen) / Ibuprofen = this is an anti-inflammatory medicine and will be helpful for the enlarging bruise (also known as contusion). Call your pediatrician, follow-up asap.See 1 more doctor answer

Were there X-rays: You might have suffered a fracture over the zygomatic arch or over the orbit, and this could explain delay, but lingering symptoms could afflict the supra-orbital or infra-orbital branches of the trigeminal nerve. Best to get assessed by either neurologist, or neurosurgeon. Also, get help preventing future seizures.

What's good for a bruised up eye (black eye)? My friend got hit with a baseball by mistake at a game. What can she put on it? Thanks!
Any other symptoms?: If vision is good and nothing else seen, simply ice packs (be careful not to get frost bitten) for 5 minute sessions 3-4 times a day for a day or two is a good start. If vision is blurry, best to see an ophthalmologist to make sure there is nothing serious going on like a hemorrage. Same if there is pain.See 1 more doctor answer

Bruising: It is not unusual for bruising around the eye or face to spread or drift downward over serval days due to gravity. The old blood or bruising commonly will settle at the junction of the lower eyelid and check. It should slowly resolve but may take a couple more weeks. Some patients have used Arnica cream to expedite resolution of bruising, however it may not help much at this point.

Depends on severity: Of injury, but it can sometimes take many months, up to one year. But more important thing is to figure out why you fell in the first place, so you can prevent future falls that can cause even more severe injury. Speak with your doctor, so that you can take steps to prevent future falls.

Hit head sat. Blacked out. Bump and small cut. Above right eyebrow. Tingling. Yesterday extremely dizzy now 4 days later developing black eye. Concusion?
Yes: You describe symptoms of a closed head injury or tbi, and I advise that you not delay an evaluation by your md or by a local emergency room dept. To be reassured that something more serious is not going on, a exam will help to determine this. A subtle fracture or hematoma can be serious.See 2 more doctor answers
