I only noticed my sons head at 8pm, I feel so bad for not noticing! The marks hidden by his hair but I still should have noticed!

Ds is 6 and said he fell over at lunch time play, teacher cleaned his grazed knee and that was it. He's hit his head quite a few times, he has 3 siblings but I've never seen a bump like this. It looks strange to me

Any opinions on it? He's fine in himself and fast asleep.

That's an odd looking bruise no help at all.
Can you ring 101 and describe it to them?

I wasn't sure if they'd be any help because he's asleep.

He's fine in himself, no temp or anything. Not even a headache.

I've just never seen a bruise like it before.

(Going to make him a bubble helmet)

It looks like a graze come bruise, im sure he will be fine xxx as long as he has none of the usual symptoms of concussion.

What did he fall on? DS had a funny bruise/ bump a few days ago and it was basically the imprint of the gravelly path he had fallen on.

He was in the muga (multi use games area) at school playing football and got tackled.

I feel incredibly guilty for not noticing it earlier

Did he fall against the fence because it could be an imprint of that?

The flooring is concrete, not smooth at all and looking at that bruise it does look like it.

His ta was very shocked this morning when he showed her and she took him to the first aider just to be safe as he didn't have a lump come up at all.
