Will a blood clot in my face travel to my brain and kill me? What is the treatment ?

I have a blood clot in my face , from where I was attacked 2 weeks ago. I wasn t too worried about it but my friends and family are, they seem to think it can wander off into my brain or somewhere and kill me... Should I be worried? What should I do? Keep track of it with my finger? Eat certain things? Take some sort of medicine? See my GP? Cheers x

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

If it is a superficial clot you should be worrying about just superficial infection or dark patch over there.If it is a clot that happened due to strong blow , there could be involvement of inner structures of head based on the area and force.This clot , if superficial , will not spread inside , but the impact could be damaging to inner structures.I advise you to visit your Doctor and make sure you dint hurt your brain.
To get rid of the patch forming , you can apply aloe vera juice over the patch .
Take care.
