Thank you for posting your query.

Your current symptoms are possibly due to a scalp hematoma (bleeding underneath the skin over the affected area). This is not a serious condition, and subsides with medical treatment in a few days.

As of now, you could take analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for pain relief.

However, if the headache worsens in severity, or if you develop vomiting, blurred vision, or decreased alertness, then you could consult a doctor in the ER.

Wishing you good health,
