    What do fever and headache after a head injury indicate?

Posted on Sat, 22 Jul 2017 in Brain and Spine
Question: My cousin fell on a hard tile floor and XXXXXXX her head. The next day she had a bad head ache and a low grade fever and three small veins protruding by her temple. This happened three days ago. She still feels very fatigued and has pain on her right temple where the veins are bulging. Could she be bleeding?

Brief Answer:
Continue painkillers and serratiopeptidase as advised

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.

Was there any loss of consciousness, seizures, bleeding via nose or ear, Recurrent vomiting, weakness in limbs, hearing loss or facial deviation ?

Localized pain and superficial swelling can occur due to the impact of trauma.
Superficial bleeding in the scalp is common due to trauma which leads to swelling, skin discoloration and prominent veins.

The symptoms should improve in a week.
Take pain killers with serratiopeptidase like zerodol sp twice daily for a week with prescription from a doctor.
The requirement of CT scan head depends upon above-mentioned symptoms.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
