  • Black eyes are caused by the bump she had, its bleeding in the surrounding tissue......like if u bump ur nose u can end up with two black eyes. I think u really should have her checked out by a doctor just to rule out any other damage that may have been caused. Arnica is a natural remedy that can reduce bruising ! How has she been since the bump ? over sleepy ? headaches ? reduced awareness ? pupils in eyes not reacting right or one pupil small & the other one large ? vomiting ?........as all could be related to concussion, remember bumps like that can cause the brain to swell due to the jolt.......just have her checked out & put ur mind at ease. My daughter took many a bump & was always ok, but i dont need to tell u how precious they are, so be safe not sorry ! Let me know how things go ! Good luck :) & a hug for ur little girl !

  • thanks for the reply.. sorry if i wasnt able to reply soon.. we already went to the doctor and she had a ct scan, thank God its clear.. but i have another problem now because her stomache is aching and she keeps on vomiting and cant eat, the doctor said its because of chronic constipation.. hope she gets well soon..

  • Im glad u took her & got checked out & all is well ! Hopefully her sickness will pass quickly kids theyre always up & down, one min u think theyre die'n next theyre bouncing.....lol Is she constipated ? get her to drink plenty, also i take cod liver oil capsuals twice a day every day, theyre great for keeping things soft. Maybe she's too young for that, what age is she ? did the doc not give her anything ? Thats the fun of parenting..........always worrying about the wee rascals, make the most of it though they get worse as they get older......lol :D Regards :) for now ! let me know how she is ?
