At this time, it is necessary to distinguish between urgent and timely medical treatment such as continuous bleeding and hematoma of the wound; severe crying; vomiting, more than once; sleepiness, and it is difficult to wake up; abnormal facial features; abnormal behavior, appearing Seek medical attention in time for convulsions. Keep calm during this process, and don't let your tension affect your child.

2. If the child's consciousness is clear: There are no other obvious symptoms except for hematoma of the head, the following treatments can be done:
