Large bump on forehead, concussion, bleeding in eyes. CT scan done. Healing time?

About two weeks ago my son was hurt in gym class. He ended up with a large bump on his temple. He had a ct scan at the ER. Said he had a minor concussion . He still has lots of blood in the whites of his eye, and have noticed tthat he has a couple of small pea sized bumps under his skin along his brow bone. These were not here before. Is there anything to worry about? And how long does it take the blood to leave his eye?

Thank you for posting your query.

Based on the description, your son has suffered from mild head injury and scalp hematoma (bleeding under the skin over head).

He should recover well on its own within another 2-3 weeks. Blood in the eye would also go.

Pea size bumps are possibly small blood clots. No need to worry about them. If it is painful, analgesics such as ibuprofen may be used.
