I was in a car accident two days ago and initially only had abrasions on my forehead from the air bag...yesterday I developed edema around the abrasion about 3 inches in circumference. Is this normal?

Hello!

Anthony Bray MD :

It sounds that you had some bruising of the subcutaneus tissue of the forehead with your accident >> the edema would be associated with this....

I would expect that it should resolve within a few days.
