Thanks for your query to health care magic. Pain in the head is due to scalp injury
. Give analgesics like acetaminophen
as you are giving. Keep a watch on danger signs like drowsiness
, seizures and progressive head ache - all these suggest that there is some internal injury to brain. Most of the times he is having a bruise
externally. But if his head ache is not improving eve after say six hours then no harm in getting a doctor's opinion to be sure that nothing serious is going on.
don't worry he will be fine.
