Hi, this is Dr Ansari, welcome to JA

Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 11 days ago.

Please tell me what are the complaints you have for your daughter?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
My daughter woke up yesterday with a subconjunctival haematoma which is not causing her any discomfort or vision problems. I took her to see a nurse at a local clinic who said it all looked fine, no cuts or abrasions. She cousont remember any trauma thigh after much questioning she said maybe her little brother had kicked her (I am not sure if she is just syajbg this though to give me an answer). The reason I am slightly concerned is that two months ago, while on holiday, she had a black eye which she couldn’t remember the cause of, though there was a small cut on her cheekbone indicative of injury. Should I be worried at all? She is otherwise very fit and healthy, growing well and full of energy.

Black eye means she had a scalp injury that could be part of head trauma during playing.

I didn’t get a clear photo of the black eye at the time but it was like she’s beeen punched in the cheek. She had a bruise under her eye and going to her cheekbone.

Yes, you are right it is a subconjunctival haemorrhage, It doesn’t require treatment. Artificial tears (eye drops) can help relieve eye irritation if it occurs. Most broken blood vessels heal within 2 weeks. Larger spots may take longer to go away.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
It was just that she couldn’t remember when it happened. We noticed it one morning though thought maybe she could have banged her face in the night.
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I am wondering if the two incidents could be linked
Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 11 days ago.

Yes, You can see the GP to do an initial assessment and do a CT brain plain.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Do you think she needs a ct scan?
Expert:  Dr.Shakeel Ansari replied 11 days ago.

There was a black eye we need to do investigation for a suspected headinjury
