Hello,

You are quite correct. The most important feature to look for is any change in behavior: excessive sleepiness or fussiness, vomiting, eyes looking in different directions, or unequal size of pupils.

It is normal for there to be redness at the site of injury. This will fade in several days. Unfortunately, this happens frequently and is no reflection on your parenting.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Arnold Zedd, Pediatrician
