Child has pain when touching head, low fever. Given Tylenol. Now swollen forehead. What could it be?
my 6 year old daughter has been complaining all day that whenever i touch her head it hurts. apart from a low fever , for which i gave her tylenol this morning, she has otherwise been fine. this evening at dinner, my husband and i noticed that her forhead is swollen, a little bit spock like in the middle and going out like a v over each eye. we put a cold cloth on it for a while. any idea what it could be?
This problem is looking like cellulitis of the skin of forehead as there the skin is swollen, red and your child is febrile. You can continue Tylenol for fever and consult your Doctor for the examination of that skin lesion and specific treatment
