Hi, thank you for writing on Healthcare Magic.
I have gone through your query and understood your concerns.
With this presentation, I think you might be having an infectious problem. The infection might not be directly inked to the bump on the head. In my opinion, I would suggest you consult a GP for proper assessment and management.
I hope I have answered your query
I wish you good health
