Occipital neuralgia: The greater and lesser occipital nerves live in the back of the head on both sides. The lesser nerve runs towards your ear and the greater nerve runs to top of back of your head. These occipital nerves can be aggravated without any trauma.

Hairless patch: If it doesn't hurt her, and isn't red or irritated, then it probably isn't anything to be worried about. Kids turn their heads to track things all the time and they tend to lose hair in that are due to friction. It always comes black. ...Read more

My baby has a hard bump on the back right side of his head. I've read that this could be a bulging fontanelle, which worries me. Should I be concerned?

My baby has a hard bump on the back right side of his head. I've read that this could be a bulging fontanelle, which worries me. Should I be concerned?

Bruising?: The anterior and posterior fontanelle are both midline, so if the bulge is posterior and right sided, the likely cause is some form of scalp bruising, most likely cephalhematoma, if a hard bump. Your only concern should be jaundice, not brain damage, as this scalp bleed is not intracranial, or within the skull, it is more superficial than that... ...Read more

Robin mckenzie book "treat your own neck" is $8.32 online, otc meds, injections if all else fails. ...Read more

Trigger point: This could be a muscle knot referred to as a trigger point. Seek a doc with knowledge of this, often osteopathic docs are better educated or someone with fellowship training from the am acad of anti-aging medicine. Often these can be relieved with one to a few injections. Add mg glycinate several caps two or more times per day as mg relaxes muscles. Massage by skilled hands can also be helpful. ...Read more
