Nothing to worry if there are no CNS signs.
Apply ice packs 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days.
Observe for vomiting, nausea or convulsions.
Ok and take care.

Hello my husband got really upset and bashed his own face into a wall where he then picked up my iPad and proceeded to hit himself around ten more times(forehead right in the middle he has hot this spot before.). The area is very swollen and his body feels very hot and even I m very warm but he s shivering. What s wrong with him? Should he get rest? Because he just started a new job and had take a day off for graduating his program and if I told him he had to go to the hospital he would straight out say no. What should I do?

My son came home from school with 3 bumps on his forehead that look like insect bites. They are swelling a bit. One of them is draining a clear fluid. I m not sure what they are or how we should treat them. We gave ibuprofen and put a cold compress on them.
