My daughter fell and hit her head on the bathtub last night. After, she said that she felt a weird pressure where she hit her head, her ear felt like it needed to pop and her neck hurt. I felt around and she has no lump so i thought everything was ok. I checked her throughout the night and she seems fine. But someone just told me that not having a lump is not a good sign. Should I be worried?

Yes, I fell out out the bathtub yesterday. Hitting my head on the cabinet and broke the toilet seat with my head. Have a very large lump on my head and neck area. I do not have any other symptoms. fell okay but very soe to touch. Applied ice for 4-5 hours after accident. Should I be concerned? The swellen has gone down greatly, no headaches.

my 16 month old son fell and hit his head on the bathtub, awhile later he threw up and tips of fingers turned blue so I called 911 they came and said everything was fine. Next day my son is coughing and gagging when he is not even eating or drinking anything. He is teething and drooling a lot but the gagging is new, should I be worried?
