Thanks for your query
Your baby had hematoma formation at injury site due to rupture of small blood vessels.
Apply ice cold compresses over affected area for 5 to 10 minutes 2 to 3 times a day.
Give acataminophen for pain relief.
Watch for any lethargy/vomiting.bleeding from ear or nose.
In case you observe any feature take her to ER for further management.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless..

You shouldnt worry too much about it. The swelling should resolve by itself in a few days. If the baby has any pain you can give her some pain syrup.
