Brief Answer: relax. check for any injury. Detailed Answer: Hi, thanks for using HCM. I went through the query and understood your concern. I appreciate your concern. Relax. After falling down, does she developed vomiting, any seizures, any abnormality in mental functions? Any of these symptoms if developed needs further evaluation. Is there any physical injury to the body. Kindly check her whole body once including head for any abrasion or indentation. If no injury detected then no need to worry. If she still cries due to any injury you can give her acetaminophen dose based on her body weight. This will help her. I hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask if any further queries and I will be glad to answer them. Wish you and your family good health. Regards
