Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand that you are concerned about your daughter's head injury
. It appears that she has developed a hematoma (a localized collection of seeped-out blood) and this is obvious from the local swelling and bruising.
The fever may be unrelated to the head injury and could be due to a common viral infection (more likely since other people in the family are also sick).
If your daughter has not had any black out or any ear / nose bleeds following the injury, and if she is active and alert, then you can follow a wait-and-watch approach. I would suggest the following simple remedies:
- Keep giving cold fermentations - this will reduce the inflamation as well as be soothing
- You can give her some mild analgesic
- Ensure that she gets adequate rest
Watch for the following danger signs:
- Severe headache
- Incessant crying or irritability
and lethargy (other than during her sleeping time)
- Bleeding from the ear or nose
In case she develops any of these danger signs or any other out-of-the way complications, please seek urgent medical attention.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
