However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Choroidal cysts: Are usually incidental findings and don't cause symptoms. However, a 5 year old shouldn't be having headaches and vomiting. You should see a pediatric neurologist ASAP about the scattered white matter signal abnormalities, and whether they might be contributing to the 5 year old's symptoms. ...Read more

It's concerning : While t2/flair signal hyper-intensities are not very specific and may represent many things, if you are 21 y/o it's concerning as you shouldn't have any.
