How To Treat Dent On Head Caused After Head Injury?

I was with my boyfriend riding a side-by-side yesterday, our steering locked up, he slammed on the breaks & my head hit the roll bar at full force, I blacked out for a minute felt dizzy but after about 10 minutes I felt fine. Now, I have a dent in my head, and hurts to the touch.

Dent in the forehead may be due to bone depression fracture or laceration of the skin. Usually it may take 2-3 weeks to recover but without examination it is difficult to say how much is the problem. Please consult your neurophysician he will take bone scan and treat you accordingly.
