Pediatrician 's  Response
Thank you for your query. Head injury in a baby is quite common.Don't panic. Take your child to a doctor if she has these problems. 1.Persistant vomiting 2. Unconsciousness or drowsiness.3. Convulsions.4.Abnormal movements or bleeding through her nose and ears. If these symptoms are present she might need a CT scan brain and a pediatric consultation.Meanwhile give her some paracetamol and apply an ice pack to that area. Wishing her a speedy recovery.Bye
