I got a bump on my forehead, how to get rid of it ?

Hi, I got hit on my head with a big chunk of wood. I immediately got a bump on the forehead and top of my head. I then put ice on it. There were no other symptoms for the first 24 hours. After that, I got a little dizzy after 30 hrs and a feeling wanting to vomit (but didn t). Now, 4 days have passed, the bump is gone but I have discomfort in my upper stomach most of the time and the scalp on the top of my head feels mildly numb when I touch it. Do I still have to see a doctor . Or this is the normal healing process?

Hello ;
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the bump is settled and you are not having vomiting;headache;dizziness right now then the injury might not affect you and it is in process of healing.As for the discomfort in upper stomach it may be due to acidity and gastritis for which you can take a antacid like Ranitidine 300 mg twice a day before meals.Just in case you do not feel any improvement in next 2 days then you should consult a doctor for the stomach problem.
