What is the cause of head concussion, after he got the head injury ?

My dad hit the back of his head yesterday. He doesn t remember what happened. I assumed he fell, his the back of his head on a gate then passed out because he lost a good a lot of blood on the floor. I cleaned his wound and head it cover and wrap it. But Neosporin and hydrogen peroxide are all I have assess to. I m really worry about him, because he seems to have a head concussion, and can t remember how he got hurt. I tried to tell him to go the ER but he has no insurance and just refused to go. What can I do? Can I at least take him to family doctor to check him out? Any doctor I can take him to?

hi silu lai.. welcome to healthcare magic.. thanks for your query.. head injury is a very serious condition. its better to take him to an emergency medicine specialist.. try to convince him that its a serious contion and he needs urgent medical aid.. most of the times there are no immediate symptoms but there may be complications later.. i think u got my point.. i hope this will be helpful to you...

Hi my 21 month old got hit in the back of his head tonight around 12 am it is now 2:50 am and he is having trouble sleeping. One of our book shelves fell on him but it had no books on it and it is not very heavy. He tried to climb up on it and fell off but the shelf fell on him at the same time. I tried cleaning his womb it s not too big or deep and it stopped bleeding within 3-5 minutes after the incident. I m just concern that he might have a concussion. He played and ate fruit after the incident but I m just worried about him. Please let me know what I need to do if there is anything I should do? Mahalo!

I had a puncture head injury last Friday night. The doctors at the ER thought it was a non-concussive injury. However I started showing signs of a concussion and went into urgent care on Tuesday. They did a CT scan. They said the CT scan came back clear, but I did have a concussion. Now, I am having a nosebleed almost all day long from that same side of the head.
