Hit in forehead 1 wk ago & now has black eye
My son was hit in the forehead one week ago which caused a big bump and bruise. Today after almost 1 week I noticed this morning his eyes are bruised. He has had no other injuries ? Is this part of the injury from his forehead ? What to do ?
Thank you for your question, it sound like the injury last week was getting better and then you noticed the new symptom. As you did not mention any other more recent injury, like you I am concerned it may be connected. I would suggest that you have your son evaluated by his primary care physician who may recommend further tests.
