Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Watch for symptoms of head injury such as vomitings, abnormal behavior, bleeding from nose and ears, fits and report immediately if you see any of these.

You can give Tylenol or ibuprofen in prescribed dose for pain and gently apply ice.

Consult the pediatrician for physical examination to look for any abnormal signs.

Hope I have answered your query.
