My daughter fell and hit her face right beneath her eye. Can this cause a concussion? Is there anything I should look for as a red flag.

My daughter fell and hit her face right beneath her eye. Can this cause a concussion? Is there anything I should look for as a red flag.

Uncommon: While not impossible, it is very uncommon for facial trauma such as you describe to cause a concussion. Facial trauma that severe would be quite obvious. But as usual for any head trauma, monitor for symptoms such as recurrent vomiting, assymetric body weakness (all of a sudden I'm weak in my right hand...), complaint of severe headache. Likely she will be fine with a black eye in the morning. ...Read more

Get checked: The effects of concussions can vary and be unpredictable. It depends on the severity of the injury. The best thing is to give your brain complete rest. The more strain you place on your brain while it is attempting to heal, the more likely it is to slow down the healing process.

It would be good to get re-evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
