Thanks for writing to health care magic.
In a case of head injury
you should monitor certain things and you should consider it as a emergency if they develop.
monitor the consciousness of child. Development of seizures, bleeding from ear and nose, vomiting
are the conditions you should look out for.
Any cut in the scalp
area will cause lot of bleeding because of the vascularity of the area....
So put some pressure with a cotton. This will stop bleeding.
if the cut is large then sutures may be required. but from your message i do not think it is.
is required to be given.
You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........
In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and i can answer your queries regarding your kid online on regularly.
Hope this helps.
