Thank you for posting your query.
First of all, I would like to reassure you that your child's symptoms do not suggest any serious internal brain injury
The description is suggestive of scalp hematoma
, which can cause pain and swelling in the affected region. Colour change over the skin is normal in these conditions. We expect improvement over the next 5-7 days.
If there is headache or vomiting
, a CT scan
of the head may be done.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology)
