DS is 2. Yesterday he had a red marl on his head, nothing weird, he is a rough kid and always has marks and bruises. It was no worse this morning.
So this afternoon I get a call from daycare saying they where worried as he has had a reaction to bites on his head. I left work and booked in to see a doctor just in case.
When I pick him up I see the swelling and it look really bad, the swelling starts from the top of his nose going in a sort of upside down triangle from there and the bites are now lumps and noticeable. The doctor asked if a head injury has been reported which it hadn't. It looks like he has been smacked very hard over the forehead but there is no bruising.
He seems to be in no discomfort, the doctor said there's no sight of infection but the swelling truly does look really bad. But he is his usual self.
I always trust my gut feeling but I am not sure if maybe I am over reacting because it looks bad.
What would you do?
