Bleeding from OUTER corner of eye, after head injury
Hello, my aunt hit the left side of her head against wall corner in the middle of the night a 2-3 days ago which was bad enough to leave a gash above her left ear. Bleeding was stopped by gauze/tape.
But yesterday she noticed blood drops from the OUTER corner of her left eye. It has not bled since.
The hit to her head was bad enough that blood dripped on floor and she did not remember what caused it until a day or two later. She also had a headache the following day of the hit to wall.
She says she feels "heavy headed", which Im not exactly sure what she means.

No signs of black eye so far, but slight swelling.

Is the situation serious? Why is blood coming from outer corner versus inner corner where most tears seem to come from? Possible brain injury?

Im worried that something will burst in her head.

Please advise ASAP

If your aunt has blurred vision, double vision or other eye changes she would see an Eye MD Ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye evaluation.  If there is any trouble with her speech, gait, troulbe moving arms or legs or she don't feel right she should see her personal physician. Yes the blood from the cut could have seeped into the corner of her eye.  It is important to rule out subdural hematoma if she has neurological symptoms.
