Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned how severe the injury was or if you had any immediate complications like a blackout
or bleeding from the ear or nose. Some amount of headache and a mild swelling can be expected due to the impact of the injury.
The fever which you are having is most likely due to the cold
(probably a viral fever
), and is unlikely to be due to the head injury
. I would advise you to watch for the following warning signs of a serious head injury like:
- Severe headache
- Projectile vomiting
- Bleeding from the ear or nose
- Weakness or numbness
of any part of the body
If you are having or develop any of the abouve danger signs, then you have to seek urgent medical attention.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
