Suggest treatment for forehead injury

My 6-yo daughter fell flat on her face on sat and have wounds on her forehead, side of her eyebrow and on the Sid elf her nose and nostril under. She seems fine and her paeditrician gave her ok to go ahead for school today. She came back 6 hours later with a slight swelling between her eyes and visible blue-black dark eye circle. Is this something to worry about and should I bring her to a & e?

Hello
Thank You for contacting HCM.

After an injury blood accumulates under the skin. With the passage of time color of blood changes along with the overlying skin which is a normal process. I would suggest you not to worry. It will take some time to heal completely. Meanwhile you should take extra care and keep her in front of your eyes.
> take a cloth and warm it over flame and put it over the forehead. It will give soothing effect to her
> Continue to give analgesics as advised by your doctor.

Report to hospital if:
> There is loss of consciousness
> Blurred vision
> She becomes lethargic
> She Vomits
> Bleeding from wound or nose
> Any unusual symptom

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow
