Child having swollen bruise, increased outbursts, temper tantrums post banging the head. What can be done?

My 3 y/o son fell hard and hit the front of his head on sat. It has a large swollen bruise (about half dollar size. Since then he has had increased outburts and temper tantrums that are harder to control. Is there anything I should be doing (giving meds for pain or is there anything at this pt the doc can do- or do I just monitor it?)

thanks for writing to health care magic

i hope he did not hae any loss of consciousness, seizures or bleeding from ear or nose

these are the danger signs that should be observed post head injury

your child seems to have temper tantrums and mostly are unrelated to that particular even

temper tantrums are common in this age group and should be handled with care

if the symptoms persists and become difficult to control.... pl get the child reviewed by your doctor

hope this helps

take care
