Two days ago, my father fell on the road facing down. He is 71 years old. He got injured on his knee, wrist, and nose started bleeding due to injury. I took him to a local doctor who prescribed a few medicines and a tetanus injection. I am attaching the prescription along with this for your reference. Now, he has got a few red clots one inch below both his eyes under the skin, which seems like a blood clot. Should I be worried about it? Do I need to consult someone for it? I am attaching a picture of his face too. Kindly check them and guide me. He is taking medicines for asthma and diabetes.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have checked the pictures (attachments removed to protect patient identity). Bleeding from the nose and clots below the eye are dangerous signs of internal bleeding or hemorrhage in the brain. I would suggest you immediately carry out a CT scan of the head and neck region to rule out internal bleeding or hemorrhage in the brain, further treatment and management accordingly. If the reports are normal, you can continue with the prescribed treatment.
Can internal bleeding happen two days after the incident? Would not it have happened immediately?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Yes, it can happen two days later. Bleeding may be slow, so it took time to show up below eyes. Also, bleeding from the nose started immediately after the fall. CT scan becomes mandatory in this scenario to rule out internal bleeding.
