Forehead injury, tender knot, bruising, fatigue, nausea. Taken Advil. Should I go to the doctor?

I was walking out of work and slipped on ice this morning. My forehead hit the corner of the brick wall (at the hairline). I have a quarter sized knot that has a red line and bruising . It is very tender to the touch, no fever , slightly fatigued, and nauseous (I have not vomitted). I took advil but it did not help. Should I go to the doctor?

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Contusion is common due to trauma ( blunt injury) .
As you stated that you fall over ice and then your head strike with brick wall means first you strike with ice then with brick means indirect pressure.
In my opinion injury is simple and take most potent pain killer+ serratiopeptidase .
The contusion will resolve within 3-4 days.
Ice massage will provide further relief.
Good luck.
