Bump on head.: You can get an egg like bump when you hit your head. Blood is trapped under a tissue covering the bone. This will resolve on its own. Should be safe to sleep especially if you didn't pass out when you hit your head. If this blow to your head left you rattled or confused then have someone check on you early in the AM. They just need to see if they can wake you. ...Read more

See your doctor: The bump on your head is likely a collection of blood we call a hematoma. Either way with your current symptoms you should have a good physical exam and have the doctor determine if you only have a slight concussion or something more serious. ...Read more

Healing: Normally, the head bleeds easily and if it does not coe out with a cut will stay under the skin on the head. It is very sore but slowly goes away. At this point it is not serious just bothersome. It is healing so you do not need to worry. Warm showers over the head probably would help! ...Read more

Nose: It is hard to say without seeing it. It could be a hairline fracture that was not seen on initial exam or you could have fractured cartilage that is harder to detect. I would recommend further evaluation. ...Read more

My 20 month old baby fell and hit her head real good on a door. Now she has a bruise and bump. What to do to bring down swelling? Is she gonna be ok?

Several cues: The kid who is not knocked out, disoriented or confused @ the time of the injury is probably fine. Confusion or repeated episodes of vomiting in the hours after trauma deserve a look over by the dr. Kids under 8 can be allowed to nap on their regular schedule, with you checking in on occasion. Cold compresses can reduce the swelling, if the kid will let you. ...Read more

Ouch!: The facial areas swell dramatically because there is very little soft tissue. Put ice on it and it should go away in a few days. If you are having headaches with visual changes, nausea, trouble speaking or thinking straight you should be evaluated by a doctor. ...Read more

Ice it, if she'll: Let you. Avoid warm water on it. If she had no laceration or loss of consciousness, there's not much else you can or need to do. The bruise may spread to more dependent areas, but a large bruise under the lining of the bone sometimes can't resorb enough to avoid local calcification, or a " hard lump" as it heals. ...Read more

Ice and love: As long as the skin is intact, all you need to do is put cold compresses or ice pack on the area. Monitor for any symptoms such as severe headache, recurrent vomiting or her complaining she is seeing funny (visual disturbance). Otherwise, just giving her a big kiss on her head and cuddling with her and reading to her is good therapy. ...Read more
