Dd2 fell over and walloped her head today and I *think* there may be something in the cut

she went FLYING and hit the ground with a sickening thud

head bleeding, but she settled down so we went to the farm anyway (we had only just arrived in the carpark fgs)

anyway, I got first aid to have a look and they gave me a wipe thing and a plaster but tonight the cut looks like there may be something in it, leaf possibly as she fell near a tree

do I leave it or try and remove tomorrow? she would not let me NEAR tonight, v distressed (her not me!)

I thank you.

yes, have put Germolene on and scrubbed it gently with boiled water

looks clean for now but in the light the cut - about 1cm - looks brown inside

she will not let me near

will it get infected or sort itself out and 'push' any foreign body out?

oh thanks for asking califrau

it looks ok, has kind of healed up and doesn't look red

still won't let me near it properly but I gave it a good clean in the bath and nothing looked amiss

cracker of a bruise developing though
