7 year old having headache vomiting after a fall. Cleaned up the wound with peroxide. Should be worried?

My 7 year old son fell, he said a week ago, but i didnt see it until yesterday so i think it happened more recently. Hes got a fairly wide series of scratches on his knee and last night we popped and cleaned a boil at the bottom of his knee cap. he also had a reddish brown spot by his ankle on the same leg, no bigger than a mole. i wiped it with peroxide and now the color is gone leaving only the dried up outline of the spot. he now has a spot just like that above the boil. A few hours ago he began vomiting . he also has a headache .

your son had fall but the basic question that is whether there was any injury on the head or there was any contusion or any pressure while fall on the head if it was so then these are all allarming sign then i would advise for a ct scan to see whether there is any abnormality inside or not if vomiting and headache is continue then it can be due increased intracranial pressure also
take care
