Head little swollen

My 9+ months daughter has fallen from bed And her forehead has became little swollen & little red in colour. Can you suggest some ointment/ cream which I can apply to baby in any swollen part of the baby's body in case baby falls from bed. Regards, Sayan barman Delhi.

Please make sure that there is no injury to the underlying brain, red flags for which would be bleeding from ear/nose/mouth, unconsciousness, fits, abnormal behaviour, etc. Superficial injury like the one you described does not require anything apart from over the counter paracetamol or cold sponging of the affected part.

That swelling will go on its own and will take its own time. But head injury has many more serious implications, so avoid any fall from bed and get the child formally examined by a pediatrician.
