Why this happen?

I hit the back of my head very strongly against the door in the morning.
After some few hours, my forehead got swollen.
Why?, the back of my head didn't get swollen, but my forehead did, why?
And what can I do, to let to get back to normal?

Put some ice on it.

But why did my forehead get swollen, and not the back of my head?

No idea, I was answering the "what can I do?" part. I hope you feel better.

You okay Phlorence? Put ice on it and wait for the swelling to fade.

I've never heard of that happening, might need to see a doc if it doesn't get better soon.

The swelling was under your scalp in general. Not sure, but I suspect the skin on your forehead, having no hair roots to "hold it in place" was able to stretch more. Swelling is fluid, so it "flowed" under the skin to your forehead. It MAY now settle under your eyes and give you black eyes. Don't panic. They'll go away. So will the swelling.

It could be pressure maybe. Ice it to reduce the swelling and if it's still swollen tomorrow, have the doctor check it out.

You probably caused it to swell up. I bet you rattled your brain so much that it's starting to bleed on the inside causing it to swell up.

Now why did you go and do that? Put an ice pack on it before it looks like a Portugese sausage is growing out of your dome...

Have you tried icing your forehead whilst lying down, and rubbing your temples?

Since none of us are medical doctors, and I'm not sure how hard of a hit is hard for you, you might need medical attention. Remember the star that hit her head in a skiing accident didn't think it was serious either. Better to be safe.

If the ice doesn't work then go to the hospital.
