6 years old. Had a hit on head. Knot up behind ear, stomach pain. Should I consult doctor?

Hello, my daughter is 6 years old. She hit her head and has a knot up above/behind left ear. It s been five hours, she s had no symptoms, no headache nothing but now says her stomach is hurting a little. Should I take her into the ER or keep watching for symptoms? She did burp a few times so I thought maybe the stomach was just that?

Thanks for your query.
your daughter is having hematoma formation at injury site,I advise you to apply cold compresses over injured area.give her paracetamol for pain relief.and watch for warning signs like..altered behavior.vomiting.any bleeding from ear,nose for at least 24 hours.
In case you find any warning sign take her to doctor for evaluation.
Your daughter will be fine.
