I Hit My Head And Got Stitches Should I Worry
I have a cut on my head I had fallen and hit my head. I can pull it open and it's about 2 eights of an inch long, do I need stitches?
Probably not: 2/8=1/4" not very long, and if the 2 borders are close to each other then serous fluid will likely glue the skin back together. I sometimes use superglue or cyanocrylate to to close the small wound.

The: The bump on your head caused subcutaneous bleeding. The blood from the bruise dissected along tissue planes until it got to the scar and stopped. Your body will reabsorb the blood over the next few weeks. There is no reason for concern and no need to see the doctor as long as the head injury was minor with no loss of consciousness or subsequent impairment other than a bruise.See 1 more doctor answer

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.
Its been over 72 hours since I hit my head getting into a car pretty hard what should I still look for? Or worry about? Didn't black out or anything
Right then: Cheer up. If you hit hard enough to get an epidural hematoma you'd be dead already. The other clot, a subdural hematoma, develops more slowly. If you have a bad headache that gets worse, anything that seems abnormal, nausea, vomiting, etc. Go the er where you will have a ct scan that will probably be normal, an enormous bill, and be told you have a concussion. Worry if things are getting worse.

Had a concussion two years ago. Got in a car last night, the ride was bumpy. Hit my head a few times on hard part of seat. Should I worry about it?
Not likely: Unless you hit your head pretty hard, it's unlikely. Questions to ask yourself: did you experience loss of consciousness? dizziness? visual changes? nausea? altered mental status? Confusion? sleepiness? if you had no symptoms, and still don't, concussion recurrence from car ride unlikely.

Concussion?: Head trauma that results in persistent symptoms is usually a concussion, which means the brain is still trying to recover from the physical shock. A medical exam is needed to determine if this has happened and to recommend appropriate measures to ensure complete recovery and reduce risk of further damage.

I hit my head today and I put a wet cloth on it and then it was fine and now I have a headache Will I die? Is it something to worry about?
You will not Die! Bu: Headache can occur due to injury to the head. You can take a couple of tylenols (acetaminophen) and that will help. If the headache is getting worse and is more severe tomorrow or if you feel nauseated or start vomiting these are bad signs and require a medical check up. Be prepared to go to an ER if the situation gets much worse overnight. Ask you family to keep an eye on you overnight, in case you were to get wSee 2 more doctor answers

I hit my head on a metal bar I'm worried about a concussion. I just had one months ago and it took me long to get rid of symptoms. Should I be worry?
See HA Specialist: Acute symptoms are typically self-limited and Tylenol (acetaminophen) OTC is the best immediate therapy. However, specialty evaluation should not be delayed if concerns for neurological symptoms worsen during the post traumatic period. See Headache or Orofacial Pain specialist.See 1 more doctor answer
Hit my head a month ago and bumped it again yesterday and got dizzy head is sensitive still and concussion was last month worry?
Post concussive: After a concussion it is not unusual to have some persistent headache, dizziness, vertigo or general malaise. So long as the symptoms are getting better slowly, I wouldn't worry too much. If increased activity worsens the symptoms, slow down and see if doing a little less helps improve your symptoms. If you are getting worse, go see your doctor!!

No: The muscles of the face, "scalp" are under this area. You are likely feeling it when you move the eyebrows which is elevating the epcranius and the temporal muscles which sit adjacent to each other. Should get better with rest and time!
