Oh my gosh please help I was walking out and I was holding my 2 month old baby and he lightly hit his head on the door frame. Will it cause any harm?

Oh my gosh please help I was walking out and I was holding my 2 month old baby and he lightly hit his head on the door frame. Will it cause any harm?

He is probably fine: But at that age, I wouldn't take any chances. Please call his pediatrician to discuss and if that's not possible, consider calling the emergency room and having him examined there if they think it is necessary. ...Read more

Your 3: Year old should be examined by his Pediatrician!!
The fever is probably coincidental but kids generally don't complain that their heads still hurt a week after the trauma so go ASAP
Hope this helps

6mo Baby rolled from crawling to back and hit head w/hardwood floor and possibly door frame. Cried a bit, played, fed, fell asleep. Reason to go to ER?

6mo Baby rolled from crawling to back and hit head w/hardwood floor and possibly door frame. Cried a bit, played, fed, fell asleep. Reason to go to ER?

Head: No, especially if the baby is acting fine. Watch for extreme irritability, vomiting in the first 4-12 hrs after any potential injury, and if so then ER. But if the baby was on the floor and rolled and hit head, that mechanism of injury shouldn't be severe. If fell off bed onto hardwood floor, then different story. ...Read more

Hit head on persons head 5 days ago, DR exam ok- mild headache/sore only symptom didn't pass out. Is past frame to worry anything serious will happen?

Hit head on persons head 5 days ago, DR exam ok- mild headache/sore only symptom didn't pass out. Is past frame to worry anything serious will happen?

Should be fine: Post-concussion syndrome can include headache, blurry vision, memory troubles, and nausea. Usually it will go away within a few days. See your doctor if these symptoms persist for more than a week. Avoid any contact sport or any potential head injury for at least a week after your symptoms have completely resolved. Go to the ER if you have persistent vomiting or decreased level of consciousness. ...Read more

I just hit my head (my upper left hairline) on my car door frame. A little bump-I have a stressful day, just wanted 2 check 2 see if I'm okay to sleep?

I just hit my head (my upper left hairline) on my car door frame. A little bump-I have a stressful day, just wanted 2 check 2 see if I'm okay to sleep?

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

I hit my my head on the car door frame right side. Lil pain today woke up big headache dizziness nausea pain from head to my nose. What do I do?

Maybe concussion: Sounds like nasty post-traumatic headache. Might be of value to phone your doctor and get local advice. Potentially self-limited and may depart over next day or so, but if you start losing balance and suffer increased head pain associated with vomiting, this would be an indication to be seen in an emergency department to be on safe side. ...Read more

Ice it!: Accidents happen. The best, easiest & cheapest thing you can do is ice the area as soon as possible. Earlier is better, more often is better than less often. Acetaminophen, if you're otherwise healthy, can be used for pain relief (I tend to avoid ibuprofen). As you didn't lose consciousness or develop neurological symptoms (weakness, numbness) I surmise you will recover. Stay healthy &Good luck. ...Read more

Have had 3 possible mild concussions at 8 week intervals this year. 1.Bumped heads with boyfriend. 2. Car door swung shut and hit head 3. Hit on head w/ 9 foot pool float. Are these concussions n will they turn into CTE later? Very worried

Have had 3 possible mild concussions at 8 week intervals this year. 1.Bumped heads with boyfriend. 2. Car door swung shut and hit head 3. Hit on head w/ 9 foot pool float. Are these concussions n will they turn into CTE later? Very worried

Concussions: It is doubtful these rough 8 weeks will give you CTE. We still are learning alot about it but the cause seems to be repetitive trauma over the course of time. Not just you but many people have whacked their head and so far there hasn't been a wave of CTE in the general population. It is in athletics and not just football so far. ...Read more

Ice + pain meds: Sounds like you are sore where you got hit. Take some analgesia and ice may help. If symptoms persist or change or your teeth do not feel right when you close your mouth you may need an xray. ...Read more

re you are still experiencing mild, transient effects from your mishap - i.e. mild concussion. My advice is to return to the ER where you were treated and let them decide whether to proceed further. An undiagnosed head injury would dangerous for you and disastrous for them so they will pay attention. If not, seek a 2nd opinion from a neurologist. ...Read more
