When should I go and meet the doctor as my son is having headache for the last two days after been hit by a soccer ball but there is no other symptoms ?

Yesterday afternoon, my 10 year old son was hit in the head with a soccer ball. He got right back up and played in 2 more games - no issues. Last night he said he had a bit of a headache but nothing serious. He still has a headache a day later, nagging but not unbearable - no vomiting or drowsiness . At what point should he see a doctor?

Hi. Welcome to healthcare Magic. The symptoms of head injury can be almost none to dizziness, vomitting, and other serious ones. If he is complaining of headache even if mild i strongly advise you to see a doctor preferable a neurosurgeon and he will advise you accordingly. It is always better to be safe after ruling out everything instead of taking things for granted. Take care
