A Lump On The Forehead Of A 6 Month Baby That Never Goes Away?
hello … my child is 6 months old, from the beginning of normal birth and there are no problems, age 3 months there is a small lump on the front head just above the forehead, already smeared with drugs and all the mcem, but not yet flat, and the size of the lump is not big and not big not deflated, how do you get rid of the lump?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of a small bump on the front of the head that does not go smaller in infants can actually be many possible causes, for example:
Skin infections, such as folliculitis, warts
Benign or malignant tumors, such as lipoma, fibroma, cyst, sarcoma
Other skin enlargement, such as milia, hypertrophic scars, skin tags
Lumps originating from tissue other than the skin, such as cephalic hematomas, skull shape variations, and so on
Without checking directly, of course we also have no authority to decide whether the condition is normal or not, and what is the right way to handle it. Our advice, you do not carelessly give your baby an ointment, medication, or any concoction on a lump in his head if it is not recommended directly by the doctor. First check your baby's doctor or pediatrician so that his condition can be evaluated comprehensively, for example by X-ray examination, CT scan, biopsy, and so on. In this way, the cause of the lump can be identified and treated on target. At home, you just need to keep your baby's skin clean and don't carelessly squeeze or pick out lumps that appear to prevent irritation.
Hope this helps ...
