Huge bump in the back of head due to fall, no vomiting. Anything to worry ?

Hi our almost 3 year old Gael, had a fall on the floor, hit his head and had a huge bump in the back of his head, we monitored it for any serious signs for a concusion..Eyes were fine, no vomiting etc., he had a runny nose at the time already, his general behavior was fine, we put some ice and lots of arnica and now a week after has a mild fever . He started school this same week also ( so you know) it could be from a schoolmate as well.. Any thoughts? Thanks AAAA

Hi
In case your child is not having any deterioration of consciousness, headache, fits, vomiting, ear or nasal bleed then I do not think you need to worry much.
But if he gets high grade fever or running nose is more clear watery mixed with blood then you need to get a CT scan brain done and see a Neurosurgeon.
Thanks.
