Thanks for writing to us.
You are feeling the presence of air in your subcutaneous tissue which has leaked form the sinuses due to the fracture. This air is likely to get reabsorbed in 2-4 weeks . Please do not worry. No specific treatment is needed right now.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

these are common post headinjury symptoms especially forehead trauma .
you have been conservatively treated because the problems were not severe enough to warrant surgery.forehead numbness will usually persist upto 3 months and then rapidly resolves . the something moving feel is usually much more transient and will resolve in few weeks if no csf leak present .
please avoid unnecessary anxiety these problems settle down very well in short duration of time
