Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that there is no need to worry regarding the head injury, as the current symptoms do not point to any internal brain injury.

The fever is most likely not related to the banging of the head. It could be a viral fever.

You can take paracetamol (tylenol) for relief from fever. If symptoms persist, you may consult a doctor.

Wishing you good health,
