Neurologist 's  Response
Hello !
I read your question and understand your concern.
Headache and dizziness are very common after a head concussion. There is nothing to worry about. It is caused by the brain temporary dysfunction . He will recover spontaneously the next days.
I would recommend to avoid head trauma for the next month, because a second trauma would cause serious complications. I would recommend pain killers for headaches for some days.
If the situation gets worse and he has severe headache , somnolence or nausea I would recommend you to consult with a neurologist and have a brain CT scan to rule out a late intracranial hemorrhage.
Hope to have been of help!
Best wishes!
