Child having fever and back pain after falling from bed, swollen spot on the back. Is it serious?
Is this something serious?
Should I take him to emergency room or can I wait and take him to his pediatrician tomorrow
Thanks for Posting your query
Firstly it is Thursday here in India - Your history says it is Monday There ? [Your Today is Monday]
The history you provided is suggestive of a blunt injury
If he had fallen on the side where there is a swelling there are chances that he would have developed a hematoma [Bleeding In layer below the skin of the back or a small tear in the fibres of the muscle leading to the swelling]
There are remote chances that the collected blood has got infected and that has resulted in the temperature and pain to touch[Tender]
If the skin over the swelling is Red/Tensed/ and/or Hot ,I would recommend It would be better if you can take hime to an emergency room
Get a CBC done, A High Resolution Sonography and as per the reports and clinical examination start treatment
Hope I have answered all your queries, in case you need any clarification write back
wishing your son a speedy recovery.
