I wonder if I could ask you ladies some first aid advice? I didn't see how it happened as he was behind me coming in the front door but my son somehow gashed his forehead open tonight. Quite a big cut, about three quarters of an inch diameter, the skin split open, bled fairly heavily for a couple of minutes and then stopped. I have taped a piece of cotton wool soaked in antiseptic fluid over it and he is now sound asleep. Should I take him to the doctor in the morning, I wonder? I wouldn't normally worry about this kind of thing - he has had so many bumps, bruises and gashes, particularly to the head - but the skin is split apart so I am not sure in this case what is best. Thank you!
