You may send the uploaded photo to HTMG when you have a virtual consultation. There may have been soft tissue trauma which is slowly resolving if there was a fall or injury. Other causes include an allergic reaction. Please a cool compress (ask your PCP) on the area, while waiting to be evaluated by your pediatrician.
