Big Bruise To Forehead
A MyHemophiliaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, my 3 year old son has moderate hemophilia, level 3.

He had a nasty bruise on his forehead that has swelled up to a golf ball size, and has rebled a little.

Apart from trans acid, is there anything any of you guys have used to stop the bleeding and support recovery?

We are very worried

Thanks so much

Is you son being treated by a Hemophilia Treatment Center(HTC)? You should check with the hematologists at the HTC nearest to you.

When my son was small he seemed to get those at least twice monthly. I discovered an ace bandage around his head with a small soft ice pack tucked inside helped get rid of them or keep them from getting so big….he didn’t like his head wrapped and iced much and it seemed like he was more careful after I started treating them like that!

Use icepacks and pain relivers.
