My son (2) just pulled his dresser down on himself. I was using the bathroom so I don't know how much fell on him because by the time I started running to the room he was already up and walking to my room. He is acting completely normal and only has a scratch on his arm. Should I take him to the doctor or just monitor him closely?

Well doesn't sound like he had any kind of head injury so I think it's fine just to watch him now

If he'd broken a bone you'd already know that by now

If he's still fine in another two hours I see no need for the doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
