What is meant by soft tissue injury?

Hi Doc, what s a soft tissue injury? My six month old daughter took a fall 5 days ago, we noticed a bulge on her forehead the next day, despite applying cold compress, antibiotics and vitamin c (recommended by our GP) the swelling is yet to subside, should we be worried? I m considering having an xray done...

Thank you for consulting in Health care Magic .Your daughter may be have haematoma, which happened after injury of soft tissue-skin, muscles. Bones are normal, if you want to check -better MRA,because less radiation. If you will apply heparine ointment 2-3 times small amount and rubber this place with massage, then it will disappear, you should wait 10-14 days,if bulge(haematoma) will not disappear then you go to neurosurgeon, he will do punction and removing blood from there.

Best regards
