Hi Chantal,

The appearance of a lump on the bottom of a child's head can be caused by the following conditions:

Prickly heat Baby acne (milia) Ulcers (folliculitis) Benign skin tumors or cysts (fluid-filled sacs that can grow in various parts of the body) Lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes) etc. You don't need to worry too much about this condition because it is very likely to be a condition not dangerous. However, you should have your child checked by a doctor to determine the cause of the lump so that he gets the appropriate treatment according to the cause.

The doctor will ask for a history of complaints and perform a physical examination. If necessary, the doctor may also recommend further examinations such as ultrasound examination or tissue biopsy.

If the complaint is caused by milia, the doctor may not recommend certain treatments because the condition will improve on its own. If it is caused by boils, the doctor's treatment is to give antibiotics either topically or by drinking to overcome them.

Here are suggestions for you:

Do not squeeze the lumps that arise. Make sure your child gets adequate nutrition and fluids. Beware if the lump gets bigger, reddened or the child becomes fussy. Immediately consult a doctor if the complaint persists or worsens Hopefully this is useful,
