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 am a 22,male .Actually i got a bump on my skin of penis towards the base. Then it increased in size for 4 -5 mm and become red and then ruptured with 5-6 drops of blood. I washed it with shavlon and applied neosporin ointment . but today after 2days i found the skin of scrotum just below that wound became redish ( i can see very few blood within skin) and senitive also . I think it to be some liquid or blood accumulation. I am getting scared , what should i do now.

My name is Ric and I'm a 20 year old male. I never really had a huge problem with acne until recently. The acne isn't like typical acne I've had before they are slightly more swollen and more painful. I keep from picking at them but when they eventually pop they drain a yellowish pus and take an extremely long time to heal even with the application of Neosporin and other facial cleanser products. After I wipe off the Neosporin or whichever product I may have on my face there is a swollen yellow head on the abscess but not because there is pressure or puss under it it's just like a raw cap over it that will not pop or wipe off with a towel. I also have three lymph nodes on the right side of my neck/jawline that have hardened to slightly smaller than pea size. That also seems to be where the breakout gets the worst is right on the corner of the mandible. Again, the sores stay raw and drain for 3-4 days and do not heal as fast as they should. A lot of the hair follicles on my face are getting infected too. Any idea as to what is going on?

Hello, My 8 month old son s big toenail is split pretty far down toward the middle. I clipped some of it off so it wouldn t get caught on anything. I also applied Neosporin to it before putting his sock on. Is there anything else I should be doing? He is a big time crawler and climber. I think he must of snagged his nail doing one of these things. Thanks for the help!
