Tot with soft swollen bump on front head, swelling reduced with ice pack. What is the cause?

Hello, my 3 and half years old daughter has unexplained soft swelling with small bump on her center-right of front head. When my wife put icepack on it yesterday, it went away. But today, although the general swelling was down, but the bump is still clearly obvious. Wow and why this happened? What should we do now? Thanks

Hi
Thanks for your query.
There must be injury due to fall,and hematoma is formed due to rupture of small blood vessels.and will subside in few days.
Continue applying ice pack.give acetaminophen for pain relief.
Monitor her activity,any vomiting,any abnormal activity and in case you find any get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

HI
ITS DR GUPTA

YOU HAVE TOLD ALL ABOUT THE ONSET OF SWELLING . SINCE THREE YEAR OLD CHILD USED TO FALL FREQUENTLY AND THERE AFTER SWELLING USED TO DEVELOP ON THE SCALP WHICH USUALLY RESOLVE AFTER FEW DAY .
JUST WAIT AND WATCH ABOUT PROGRESSION OF SWELLING IF IT DID NOT INCREASE IN SIZE IT WILL DISAPPEARS .
BUT IF IS INCREASIG PREGRESSIVELY IT NEED TO WORK UP OF ( HB, TLC, DLC , ASPIRATION OF FLUID AND NATURE OF FLUID . IF BLOODY ALSO CHECK FOR BLEEDING DISORDER)
