  • I would advise you contact your doctor. Although probably benign, head injuries aren't anything to take lightly

  • Try putting some ice on the bump to take the swelling down. And be careful to tie the scarf more loosely next time, or get one of those nightcaps specially made for keeping your hair out of the way when you sleep.

  • I don't really see how a scarf on your head can cause a large bump... and I've treated a lot of large bumps on the head. Please call your doctor to rule out a head injury!!
