Is it serious if you hit your head and get a big bump right above your forehead?

I encountered such a case as a 2 year old infant. I fell down a flight of stairs and was admitted to the hospital when my mom found me with a huge bump slightly above my forehead. It wasn't an issue at all. Just a normal reaction to the fall. However, you may want to go to the clinic to get your head scanned just to make sure that it is no blodclot.

Why do you feel sick at school in lunch room?

It might be anxiety but it's too general. Is it like this every day? Just today? It may be because you haven't eaten enough within the last 8 hours which causes stomach aches as well. It really isn't anything to worry about but if it continues to presist and it really and I mean really concerns you, go see your family doctor.

What to do when kids got a bump on there head?

It is rare for a child to reach adulthood without having injured their head at least once. Infants roll off the bed when their parents are distracted for a second, toddlers are unsteady on their feet, school-aged children collide with each other while playing, and older children frequently get separated from their bicycle. While head injuries are common, it is unusual for the trauma to produce any serious neurological problems.

The answer to this question depends partially on what type of "bump" the child has or how he/she obtained it. Did the child fall and hit a very hard surface? Was the child hit in the head with an object such as a baseball or a rock? Did the child run into an object such as a door or stairway banister? Another thing the answer hinges upon is whether there is a lump that is forming and visible, protruding outward? Or, is there a dent in the child's head? The outward lump, or outward swelling is a much better sign than the inward dent. If indeed the child has the dent, he/she should be seen by a doctor and xrays taken to make sure there is not skull fractures or other dangerous problem, just as bleeding below the skull. The child will require awakening every 2 hours for at least the first 12 hours, to make sure that he/she is oriented, has no complaints of dizziness - which is difficult in the small child- or if there is the complaint of a terrible headache, visual disturbance. He/she must be observed for excessive vomiting. A large majority of head injuries are not that serious. In most cases, placing an ice pack on the area and watching fdf is always the answer? Until now where cold compresses and ice packs can actually increase the swelling inside the skull, and can (though rarely) affect the brain. It is not suggest you use a compress at room temparature.

How do you clear an infected scab on your cheek?

Apply a really, really hot wet cloth to the area 4 or 5 times per treatment. Do this as many times a day as you can. The heat will kill some of the bacteria and also bring healing bloodflow to the area.

This also works on tooth and gum infections.

Why do you get a bump when you hit your head?

AnswerWhen you bump your head you cause damage to various cells that make up your tissues. Consequently, the cells release prostoglandins, and other molecules including vasodilators and constrictors, that activate an immune response. Specifically they modulate a non-specific inflammatory response, which in a nutshell causes increased blood flow to the damaged area (simplified version). The whole purpose of the increased blood flow is to allow the transport of critical immune molecules (neutrophils, monocytes, lymphocytes) to the site of damage so that they may begin the repair process.
