Hi and welcome to questiondoctors.com
Well ..how can I help you? What do you want to know ?
Following head trauma it is common to see head bruising and pain..if there is signs of confusion or memory loss then he must go to ER AsAp for a CT and MRI ..
It is treatable and usually not permanent if treated early..

Memory loss is hardly to last over 1 month so no need to worry he will be ok
To be safe do a brain CT scan to make sure there is no internal hemorrage
Good Luck

if these are the symptoms then definitely he needs a medical consultation.
see a neurologist, get a CT and MRI done.

HI
IF YOU ARE SURE THAT THERE IS A MEMORY LOSS COMPONENT,THEN AN ct SCAN OF BRAIN IS ESSENTIAL.
IF THERE IS NO MEMORY LOSS,THEN ANTI INFLAMMATORY TABLETS WITH REST IS SUFFICIENT

hello there
i do not feel you need to panic. take rest,analgesics and local gel applications will help.
wait for 3 days. if there is no improvement,consult a neurosurgeon.
