Found a dent in the back side of her head, how to vanish that ?

my wife in a frustation banged her backside of her head on to the wall. And immediately she has found a dent in the back side of her head just below the crown. She says there is no pain but we are really concerned about the dent on her head. Kindly let us know what can be done and how will that dent vanish. Thank you.

Your is having a bruise as a result of head banging.The dent is because of a small heamatoma(collection of blood)formation.This will slowly and gradually vanish in 7-10 days.You can simply apply an ice pack(but not direct ice) over the area. As a precautionary measure get yourself an X-RAY SKULL(AP+LATERAL VIEW) of the area done.
