Is It A Bump On The Baby’s Head?
I want to say, my child has a bump on his head dy. Pretty big red like a strawberry. Is that dangerous? Because I just realized, because my child just came out of a 20 day old trigger
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The lump as described by you, can be caused by several conditions such as:
Hemangioma Cyst Skin abscess Birthmark To determine which condition is experienced by your child, the lump should be further consulted by a pediatrician. The doctor will also determine whether the condition is dangerous (life threatening) or not, and what therapy should be done.
In the meantime, it is not recommended to use topical medication / oral medication / any action taken alone to remove the lump because it can cause worsening / infection of the lump. It is also recommended to avoid injury to the lump. Your child is also encouraged to consume breast milk or formula as usual.
I hope this helps.
