Child fell and banged head yesterday, today has slightly swollen face. Matter of concern?

my 3 year old son fell and banged the back of his head yesterday afternoon. After the initial tears he seemed okay (no drowseyness, his eyes were fine he wasn.t confused and was happy to play) so I didn t take him to A&E despite a really large bump. This morning he has woken up and seems fine. However he has a rather blotchy and slightly fuffy face. Could this be connected and is it something to worry about?

If his activity is fine and the swelling is subsiding it might not require consultation.Stay watch full.In case of doubt I suggest to get and opinion at the earliest because the impact of injury seems to be significant.Hope I have answered your question.
