Doctor insights on:
More details?: The opening at the top of the baby's head is called a fontanelle. It usually gradually closes by the end of the first year to 15 months. If you are palpating a swelling in that area, the baby needs to be checked. An ultrasound may be performed through that opening. If the baby fell, and there is a swelling, the baby will need to be further assessed as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Earbuds are ok: Lice prefer hair and scalp, but they run around quickly and could end up on headphone head bands (although it seems unlikely to happen). Earbuds are ok, because there is almost no place for the lice to hide. If a person is worried about using somebody else's headphones, he can keep them in a plastic bag for 2 or 3 weeks before using them. By then, the lice should have died. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If vomiting does occur call your doctor or go directly to the er. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more
