A Lump On The Back Of An 8 Month Old Baby?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, my child is 8 months old suddenly yesterday I saw there was a small lump growing on the back of the lower left side of the head, the lump suddenly grew bigger and looked a little red and the tip was like pus, last night he had a fever and was fussy. Is a lump dangerous and how is it treated? thanks.
The bumps your baby is experiencing can be caused by several possibilities, such as:
Hematoma Bang Infection
Infection of the scalp can cause lumps. The lump itself can feel hot, feverish and pus if the infection has been going on for a long time. A history of bumps in children can also cause lumps due to the inflammatory effect at the affected site. Hematoma is bleeding under the skin that can also occur on the head which can cause a lump.
It's a good idea to check your child to the doctor. The doctor requires a more complete interview and in-person examination. Without it, your child's condition cannot be determined. Later, the therapy will be given according to what your child is experiencing.
I hope this helps.
