Brief Answer: Need not worry till infant is conscious Detailed Answer: Hi there thanks for posting your query at healthcare magic First of all if the child is conscious, alert, responding to light touch that means that there is nothing really serious. Also note there is no vomiting or bleeding from the nose or any swelling or purplish color around the eyes. If none of the above signs are there do not panic. Secondly look for any visible signs of injury like swelling or a bulge at the site of injury. If there is any please describe it in your follow up. Take care and do not worry . If your are doubts are not clear feel free to ask for clarifications.
