3 Bumps

Bump on 6 year old grandsons eyebrow

i have two grandsons who are 6 and 2 they are brothers. different as night and day. i took them to the 6 year olds baseball game yesterday. after we got home i noticed a bump on my 6 year olds eyebrow. he didn't complain when it happened so not sure. we believe his brother and him were arguing over a toy and his two year old bother hit him.
i put a wet cloth on it as i didn't have ice. hes not thrown up. if it happened earlier he played an hour of baseball. don't know if he needs to see a dr. and wondering to if he'll have a black eye.

  • im sure he is fine. If hes not getting dizzy not throwing up. He says it doesnt hurt. If he gets a black eye from it, it will go away.

  • it only hurts if you touch it.

  • Could it be a bug bite and an allergic reaction?

  • if it's not bothering him, I wouldn't worry. Keep an eye on him, of course, but if he's not dizzy, vomiting, complaining of pain or a headache or anything that would indicate it's bothersome, then I would just look at it as a minor thing.

  • I really don't think a 2 year old has the strength to cause a bump unless he hit him with a metal baseball bat. He probably fell. Just watch him.

  • Kids that age aren't known for sffering in silence, so if your grandson isn't complaining, I wouldn't worry too much. Keep an eye on the bruise, but don't sweat it.
