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

My baby has a red bump on his stomach and some white dry patch looking spots on the back of his arm. It doesn't look like eczem I can send pictures if necessary

It: It may be a fungal or bacterial infection, amongst many other things including eczema. Regardless instead of sending a picture, you should take the baby in to see his doctor. Rashes can be harmless or dangerous, it's very difficult for a mother to know, therefore a medical professional should be the one to make a diagnois or suspected diagnosis after an examination in his/her office. If necessary a dermatologist (skin doctor) can be consulted.
Best of luck. ...Read more

They often can enlarge/more numerous during the first year or so and slowly subside, often completely gone by 5 yrs of age. If baby has been seen regularly by doc, I would assume that it is hemangioma and no need 2 worry. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
