 Does anybody know any remedies to shrink accident bumps/hickeys on the head for toddlers? My son has a little bump/hickey on his head.

Maybe ice?  If its big you might want to have the Dr look at it to be safe.

Arnica cream can help a bruise go away faster, perhaps it would help for bumps as well?

Generally you dont want the bumps to go away. Let them  heal on their own.
Princess is right ARnica is great for bruising.
