Hello. : Hello. I am assuming that he did not have a loss of consciousness since it was not mentioned. A person can have a mild concussion without loss of consciousness. If he has these symptoms he should be evaluated: feels dazed, blurred vision, nausea or vomiting, headache, confusion or problems with short term memory. If he has eye pain, he could have a corneal abrasion. Often a scrape doesn't require medical intervention, but if there is a laceration that might need suturing that would be different. So some specific reasons to go to the er would include: possible concussion; laceration that might need suturing; possible abrasion of his cornea, visual changes, if he needs more pain control than you can provide or if you don't believe you can clean out the wound adequately. When was his last tetanus shot? Take care. ...Read more
