Fell off bike, face and elbow injury. Put peroxide on wounds, eye swelling. Treatment?

Hi, yesterday my 8 year old son thought it would be cool to ride his friend s bike over a bike ramp without a helmet. Needless to say, he fell on the concrete on his left side and scrapped his face real bad near his eye along with his elbow and top of his hand . I cleaned it and put peroxide on it (just found out today I shouldn t have done that because it takes oxygen away from the skin) and then I put antibiotic ointment all on his scraps and covered it up with a bandage and medical tape. Now his eye is swollen. He is not complaining of any pain or sickness and hes been eating and drinking normally. Being a Mom and now a little paranoid I wanted to get professional advice on the best thing to do.

Dear customer,

The swollen eye should be examined by ophthalmologist.The ct scan of brain and orbit should be done to rule out any fracture.

You should consult the doctor and have the investigation done to know the cause.

Thank you
