Your dog needs to be examined by a veterinarian since it has been 2 days and he is getting worse.  I am also concerned that your dog is not eating and drinking normally.  Dehydration and decreased calorie intake can lead to secondary complications and slower wound healing.  A thorough examination of the wound and a neurological evaluation need to be performed.  It is possible a puncture wound has led to an infection over the head.  This could also be soft tissue swelling or bruising.  Your veterinarian will prescribe appropriate and safe anti-inflammatories and pain medication for your dog.

It could also be that he was hit by a car, I think you need to get him to the vet to make sure that there isn't a fracture in there, and that he is going to be o.k. Hope this helps, good luck.
