ENT Specialist 's  Response
Dear lavan.me Hello I am Dr Sharma ENT surgeon On the basis of info provided it appears that the little one is having injury to his brain tissue---- The collection of blood in extradural, subdural plane or intracerebral may lead to increase in intracranial pressure which can be a cause of headache and vomiting. I would advise to to consult a neurosurgeon asap. She may require hospitalisation and a CT scan of head. I hope this answers your concern. Do let me know if I can help you further. with regards Ravinder Sharma

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Praveen Tayal's  Response
Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Vomiting after a head injury is indicative of an internal brain injury and the rise in intracranial tension following the injury is responsible for vomiting. You need to get a CT scan or MRI of head done to find out the extent of internal injury she has suffered.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal

DONOT BOTHER MUCH AS INITIAL CONCUSSION OR BRAIN SHAKING MAY RESULT IN VOMITING BUT AS NOW SHE IS ACCEPTING FOOD AND NOT VOMITING IT IS A GOOD THING.WATCH CAREFULLY IF ANY CONVULSION OR SEVERE HEADACHE OR REPEATED PROJECTILE VOMITING THEN GO TO HOSPITAL HAVE CT SCAN DONE OTHERWISE JUST OBSERVE AND DONOT CREATE PANICKY.
