No: but you are "close" It's most likely an INTERNAL hemorrhoid which has clotted and is shrinking... It will slowly go away! if it does not your PCP can look with an "anoscope" Sitz baths might help! Hope this helps! DR Z ...Read more

Scalps bleed: The scalp has a large blood supply to help the body cool down. So if it's injured, say by picking at it, it will bleed more than might be expected.

No need to panic: Minor cuts on the head often bleed heavily because the face and scalp have many blood vessels close to the surface of the skin.

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
