Infant fell, got bruise on forehead. What is the cure?

Hi, my 6 mth baby fell off our bed today onto wooden flooring. She landed on her head and has a bruise on her forehead . As I had a docs appointment today anyway, I had the doctor look at her and she said she seems ok as is still lively and looks ok but I forgot to mention that we are flying tomorrow (8 hour flight) and to check if this will be ok, can you please advise? Thanks

Hi Joanna.bishop,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your child has suffered from soft tissue injury which heals by itself in few days time.
No internal injury has occured.

She seems fit to be taken on a flight.
You should feel concerned if she develops some abnormal symptoms like vomiting, excessive crying, abnormal behaviour, lethargy, etc.

I hope this is helpful to you.
