Acting fine next day: If a child is acting differently, even after a mild injury, he should be seen by his primary doctor. Sometimes an E.R. visit is needed, depending on the symptoms. Head bumps in which there is low-impact on the head, little crying, no changes in behavior, and no headache after the first hour or two, usually don't cause internal injuries. A baby who acts normally the next day is almost always fine. ...Read more

May be suture: The main suture line for most kids forms a T with the ear to ear line in back of the forehead and the middle one from the soft spot along the center toward the back. Some have a prominent suture line from the front of the soft spot running down between the eyes. A ridge in the forehead like a boat keel can be a transient feature in some kids. Confirm this with your doc. They usually grow out of it. ...Read more

You: You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more

After a child bumps their head and has knot what r the dos and donts?

After a child bumps their head and has knot what r the dos and donts?

Not many dos & donts: I am assuming that she did not black out. Applying an icepack would help reduce swelling if it is done quickly. The bump could be a blood clot that formed with the injury under the skin. If it is a blood clot, it may change the color and look like bruise. Once it forms, the blood clot will remain there for months. If she blacked out even for a short time, I would take her to er. ...Read more

If child falls and hits his head, how long does it take for a bump to show up?

If child falls and hits his head, how long does it take for a bump to show up?

Depends: It depends how hard they hit their head. Sometimes the bump pops up within a few minutes. Sometimes it gradually comes on over the next few hours. Applying ice and pressure would help prevent the swelling, but most toddlers hate the ice. The bump is caused by blood and fluid building up under the skin. It can last several weeks. ...Read more

When would doctors order CT scans when a child bumps his head?

When would doctors order CT scans when a child bumps his head?

For symptoms: Children sustain minor head "bonks" all the time. A cat scan is only necessary if the child has had prolonged vomiting afterward, exhibits neurological changes (seizure, weakness, persistent loss of consciousness), or if the cause of the trauma was severe (fall from height, high speed injury, etc). Also if the child has blood behind the eardrum or nasal drainage after the injury. ...Read more

Dresser tipped, hit 3yr old on head but did not land on her. Child cried right away, no bleeding or bump visible. She seems normal. Is she probably ok?

Dresser tipped, hit 3yr old on head but did not land on her. Child cried right away, no bleeding or bump visible. She seems normal. Is she probably ok?

Yes: When something hits a small child on the head or when she falls on her head from a distance of less than 5 feet, cries right away, the chances of any internal brain injury are very very small, as shown by a study at the er of a boston hospital some years ago. So you can be reassured and go on loving her. ...Read more

Have the doc see it.: Children get so many types of rashes and skin lesions. They can be due to allergies, illness, or any number of things. Think if there have been any new foods, soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc in her life.

No: Newborns have several types of normal rashes. Erythema toxicum is a rash that looks like flea bites and moves around the body. Nothing needs to be done. Little white milk bumps or milia are like whiteheads and fade with time as you wash the skin. Baby acne looks like little pimples and can be on the face and chest. A warm washcloth to clean is all that is needed. It improves with time. ...Read more
