Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

I understand that your child had no immediate complications. If your child is developmental normal and neurologically does not show any problem you need not worry about that.
If you want to be reassured a physical examination will rule out any problem. So please consult your doctor for the same.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
