hit on the right side of my temple. The initial swelling has gone down two weeks ago.

I know it's the blood vessels healing but on intermittent times the numbness would return. Is the normal healing time ie three weeks?

This doesn't look entirely normal.I would recommend a CT scan to see if at all there was any XXXXXXX injury.

A major injury is not expected as it has been three weeks now.But it's always better to get evaluation done.

Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.

What specialist should I go to to get this CT scan?
I haven't had any diseasiness, headaches. Is it blood drying out because of brused blood vessel?
Answered by Dr. Sudhir 55 minutes later
Ideal would be to see a neurologist or you can see your GP first and then if need see neurologist.

This is not due to blood drying or there is nothing like blood drying actually.
