Watch closely

Better not apply too many creams if not symptomatic. If persists more then a week or becomes symptomatic would need to be seen

My son bumped his head on edge of table. Hit behind right ear noticed red spot on right eye 2 hours later. Is a ct necessary ?

Can't Tell

Head-eye
Why don't you have him evaluated if you think there is significant trauma to the head? How old is he? Did you see the injury? Could the eye have been struck? Any change in mental status? Minor bumps don't usually require any treatment except for ice or maybe acetaminophen. Anything more significant warrants a proper evaluation .

There are some "birthmarks" that emerge in the first few months on the skin surface.A common one is composed of a jumbled collection of capillaries that grow faster than the kid until about a year then slow to gradually shrink down by the 4-5th birthday.These are blood red,just under the skin & can have a stain quality or be rough.Your doc can tell you foor sure

My sons neck is swollen bad below his right ear what should i do? I took him to the hospital and they said he has a viral infection but now his neck is like this, i need a second opinion. Its swollen and in one spot its really red

Hard

Hard to tell with limited history and inability to examine him, however, if he has been on oral antibiotics, and the swelling and redness are increasing after 24-48 hours of treatment, particularly if associated with increasing pain, he very well may need IV antibiotics. He should be re-evaluated by his physician for any progression of symptoms. He may be developing a cellulitis.
