If so it could be a fungal or bacterial infection and you need to take the baby to the doctor. If the skin looks normal and is just smelly this can be normal. Just wash the baby with plain water daily and use soap 2-3 times per week. ...Read more
It depends: It really depends on the type and location of the cyst. If it is in the skin, a dermatologist will likely be able to help. Some cysts are deeper down and will require a surgeon, or an orthopedic surgeon to address. Many cysts in children are benign and if not causing a problem, it might not even need to be removed. Start off with a consult with your pediatrician or family doctor. ...Read more
No: Doesn't sound like a big deal...Your arm is there, so why not just suck on it? Makes sense to your little one. Eventually, your little one will move on to just a passy. In the meantime, when he/she starts to suck on your arm, place a pacifier in his/her mouth and take your arm away. It will get better..Just takes time. Have you ever seen a teenager still sucking on their parents arms? Me either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Overuse: If you use the same arm over and over to hold your baby - it can lead to repetitive stress injuries especially if it is in a fixed position for long periods. I advise stretching, using the other arm, taking breaks or using a sling, and meeting with a physical therapist if the pain continues for muscle rebalancing/strengthening techniques. ...Read more

Kids temperature: Under arm temp is never reliable. Only strictly use rectal temp for kids (they are too young to protest!). Older kids can use buccal thermometer. When you take the temp, please always take many times daily as the temp is always higher at night when anybody has a high temperature. And please write down all the temps taken to bring to your doctor. Never tell the doc : i did not take my temp". ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby daughter's arm got hurt somehow, she cries when I try to lift or move her arm. What could this be and how do I treat this?
Have it evaluated: It is hard without a review of history & exam to guess the problem & suggest a treatment. Toddlers can dislocate their elbow falling backwards with arm outstretched or if picked up by the hand. They can also have a variety of problems causing similar cries. The sooner it is evaluated the better the healing if dislocated. ...Read more
I have a mark on my arm from sucking on it as a small child. It looks like a hickey basically. What would happen if I tattooed over this mark?
Doubt it: If you have a mark there, I doubt it has anything to do with your teething/sucking habits as a baby.Those all heal if the skin is normal.You likely have congenital skin defect or nevus.These often have irregular depth and a collection of blood vessels underneath. If you know an experienced tattoo artist they can look at the skin and let you know how well a tattoo would take/cover it. ...Read more
