Bled after hitting head. Head injury. What does it sound like?

my daughter just tripped and hit the side of her head, it started bleeding immediately for a couple min. then stopped. She did not loss consciousness , just crying of course! We came home and I cleaned the blood out of her hair and saw a size of a penny wound, after I peeled the hair away it started to bleed again, its been an hour and its still bleeding, very minimally. Should I take her to the Doc or is she okay, Im just worried about closed head injury . She seems to be fine, aware of what we bought at the store prior to the fall and remember the fruit I told her about 10 min ago!

Hi..grasselli, If the child did not feel unconscious, vomiting, or ear, nose bleeding..,or diminution of vision.. then nothing serious .., if any of above symptoms seen, then consult doctor... also if the cut of wound is wide, then stitch may be required..

Take care..
