Possibilities: Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Tinea capitis (ringworm of the scalp) can present this way, as can an inflamed cyst, or even a localized bacterial infection (abscess or folliculitis). A dermatologist should be able to help sort this out either by close examination, culture, or perhaps skin biopsy.

Scalp lesion?: The bones of the skull should have been fused for a very long time now (you are 26, right?). I suspect that what you are referring to is a superficial scalp lesion; however, the only way to determine is to be seen by a physician so that they can examine the area of concern and then treat accordingly. Take care of you can make an appointment.

My baby girl has a red spot on Her white of her eye. I am worried as to what it could be. Also, after every letter I type on here the cursor moves.

That could be a: Broken blood vessel from delivery, depending on the age of your baby. If it seems painful, it could also be that she poked her eye with her nail, or someone else's. I would still recommend that you have her doctor examine her and he/she will be able to tell you for sure.

Lithium toxic at 1.66.effects were extreme dizziness. Blind spot right eye. Vision looked cloudy. Felt floating. Saw bugs on wall. Delirum or hallucination?

Lithium toxic at 1.66.effects were extreme dizziness. Blind spot right eye. Vision looked cloudy. Felt floating. Saw bugs on wall. Delirum or hallucination?

See doctor ASAP!: I hope you are sharing with us the aftermath of taking too much lithium and have been seen by your PCP. Your description of visual hallucinations and not in your body means you still need to be under emergent medical supervision. So you don't injure yourself or others. You should not be driving or doing anything requiring using machinery, and have 24 hour care in a hospital ER, under observation.

Ophthalmologist: See an ophthalmologist ASAP. Without examining this there is no way in which to predict what it might be, but your eyesight is precious and can be damaged permanently if not treated rapidly. Go now and see an expert. Best wishes.

Could the smushy spot on my baby's head cause him to have a learning disability?

Could the smushy spot on my baby's head cause him to have a learning disability?

No: There is sometimes a squishy area on a baby's scalp following birth which is due to a small blood collection under the covering of the bone (called the periosteum). This will calcify and become part of the skull. It does not lead to learning disabilities.
