Bump and an abrasion on forehead due to falling, ibuprofen, nagging pain, nausea, concerns?

My husband tripped yesterday (7:00 pm) and hit his forehead on the edge of the counter. There was an immediate bump and an abrasion. We put ice on it and 600mg Ibuprofen didn t touch the pain. He wanted to take a nap , I let him, but woke him every 20 minutes. Napped from 8:00pm- 9:00pm. Other than nagging pain, he had no other symptoms the first day. Slept normal through the night. Awoke today with continued nagging pain. Ibuprofen helped a little. Complained about not being able to remember this morning. No difference in pupil size. After dinner tonight, complained of nausea , did vomit . bump on the head has gone down, and no discoloration was ever seen in the surrounding skin. Should we have this looked at at the ER?

1. Seems your husband had sustained head injury,
2. Unable to remember, nausea, vomiting, nagging pain can be due to blood collection inside skull or brain,
3. It is advisable to get him admitted in Causality with CT-brain to rule-out any head injury components,
4. It is not necessary that pupil size should vary in all cases of head injury.

In my view you must not take any head injury lightly.
Get your husband examined by your family doctor.
