Toddler headbutted temple 2 hours ago. Headache present all over, sleepy. Is this ok?

Toddler headbutted temple 2 hours ago. Headache present all over, sleepy. Is this ok?

I'm not sure who...: Has the injury, headache and sleepiness. If the answer is the toddler take the little one in to the ER. Better to be safe. If the pediatrician can see the child today soon, that's probably better than straight to ER, but call and see what they recommend. If your temple was injured, do you have bruising and swelling at the site? If you are in pain, get a friend 2 get you to ER, help w/ childcare. ...Read more

What to do if I got headbutted in the mouth playing basketball and my gum has swollen how can I fix it?

What to do if I got headbutted in the mouth playing basketball and my gum has swollen how can I fix it?

1st have it examined: See your dentist to rule out internal and external root and crown fractures. X-rays of the area are suggested as the naked eye cannot see everything that can go wrong. It may require further treatment or it may be alright to just let mother nature do what she does best- heal the body. Keep it clean in the meantime and take some motrin\aleve\advil which is also anti-inflammatory. Also soft foods. ...Read more

Since you: Are not having any signs and symptoms right now after trauma to your mouth, you just need to sit tight and wait. Observe a few more days and go from there. Consult your dentist if anything changed or you might just be lucky this time with no consequences. ...Read more

Accidentally headbutted at footy training, wasn't overly forceful, no nausea and continued to train. Slight head ache still a few hours after inciden?

Mild concussion.: It sounds like you had a mild concussion. Continuing sports after a mild concussion can be dangerous! Until the injury heals, your brain is vulnerable to serious injury from even mild trauma. You may think my advice is too late, but you can pass it on to your mates--it might help one of them some day. See a doctor ASAP if your symptoms get worse & before resuming training. ...Read more

Around 3days ago, I headbutted something by accident and my lip got caught on my brace, it turned into an ulcer and now the top of it has turned green?

Around 3days ago, I headbutted something by accident and my lip got caught on my brace, it turned into an ulcer and now the top of it has turned green?

Traumatic Ulcer: You have a traumatic ulcer. The good news is that they usually heal in 10-14 days. The bad news is there is nothing you can really do to speed that up. The white/green color you see is the dead tissue at the border of the ulcer. It is normal and will go away as it heals. Rinse with warm salt water to keep it clean and avoid spicy and acidly foods as they will make it hurt. ...Read more

My son headbutts everything when he is mad, frustrated,?

How old?: How old is your son? If a 2 years old, it is a temper tantrum. Walk away and don't give him any attention for the behavior and he will stop doing it. It doesn't feel good, so the only reason for doing it is the attention. Try to prevent frustrations where possible. Give choices. Encourage speech. Check with his doctor to make sure his development is normal. ...Read more

The kid is a Star!: Sounds as if you have a budding football or hockey player on your hands! Ha ha! Usually, I recommend helmets on kids until they are about three years old for all the bangs they take on the head but in this case maybe mom should put one on till Jr gets out of diapers! Sounds like a pretty good hit you got so if the symptoms don't abate rapidly (especially nausea) then, visit your doctor. ...Read more

Try position change: Yes, when breast feeding it is helpful to alternate sides frequently. Also, if baby is not staying on the breast, it could be due to poor latch and positioning. Try different positions such as football hold, side lying, and cradle. Breastfeeding is a learning process for both mom and baby. Seek help from a certified lactation consultant if the problem persists. Congratulations and keep it up! ...Read more
