my son is 2. he bumped his head on the
he has normal but off color and smelly stool. he is playing normally and no issues. he is grouchy because he was up early and then played and had gymnastics today.
do I need to go to the hosptial? it%E2%80%99s been over 24 hours since he bumped his head and there are no symptoms of a concussion. he threw up but it was 8 hours later and he has been exposed to a stomach bug.
No reasons to be concerned...
Based on your description, I don't see any reasons to be concerned. I understand he vomited once, but most likely vomiting was incidental and not related to a serious head injury.
A serious head injury is associated with loss of consciousness, repeated episodes of vomiting, altered consciousness, seizures and others. He did not have any of these symptoms, Therefore I am not worried.
Hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need clarifications.
Vomiting unrelated to injury...
Still, I don't think vomiting is connected to injury. Yes, this perhaps is related to stomach bug. But as he is fine now, it doesn't need medical attention.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
Encourage him to have more fluids...
Apologies for the late reply....
If his activities are not disturbed and he is feeding well, then I would not be overly worried. Encourage him to drink plenty of fluids. Also add probiotics which will aid in faster recovery.
Incase watery stools persists for more than 2-3 days, consider visiting his doctor.
Hope this helps.
