Cloudy Spot On Babies Eye
I am almost 5 months post natal and have a sore area at the top of my head almost where you would find a babies soft spot. What could this be?
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.
Very tender spot on top of head where babies get soft spots that burns when touched sometimes. Liquid comes out (clear smooth liquid). What is this?
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.
Anterior fontanelle: Should be easy to feel by gently touching with the soft part of the fingertips whether wet or dry. It usually closes at around a year of age, but the timing is quite variable.
Depends: It could simply be an area of increased pigmentation, like a freckle. I would recommend having your child examined by a pediatric ophthalmologist to be sure.
Is pigmentation in baby's eyes normal? There's black spot in my friend's baby eyes. And he had bad diarhea. Could it be because of herpes?

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.See 1 more doctor answer

See eye doctor: If the white cloudy spot on the iris is new, you ought to consult an eye doctor immediately. It may be a sign of inflammation inside the eye and needs to be addressed without delay. If you do not have access to an eye doctor, go the emergency room of hospital near you.

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.See 2 more doctor answers
Cloudy vision in left eye, just got over conjunctivitis. I see I have a white spot (not raised) inside my upper eyelid. What can this be?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 4 more doctor answers
