Bump on the forehead after a fall. Bites all over the body. Should I be worried?

My son fell on a concrete slab about 2 months ago. Got a huge egg on his forehead . I noticed that it never ever went away fully, was always a small bump. But this morning woke up with bites all over and that bump has popped out like an egg again. He assures me he didnt fall. I was at the ER but the wait was too long. Should i be worried? He is fine in himself, active and normal 6 yr old. Thanks

This looking like contusion formed when he got injured and blood accumulated there and it is organized and calcified that is why still there is a small bump. After the bites skin will forms wheals and it causes urticarial swelling and at the region of that old bump it looks big now. Consult your Pediatrician for the treatment of rash and for the examination of bump.
