White spot: Any unusual spot, sore or lesion that does not heal within 10-14 days should be examined. See your dentist or a dermatologist for an examination and diagnosis.

Is it normal for a 3 month old's soft spot to feel closed? There's a small indent where it should be but when you feel his head it's closed.

Is it normal for a 3 month old's soft spot to feel closed? There's a small indent where it should be but when you feel his head it's closed.

Certainly can: I have had kids whose soft spot(SS) at birth was almost undetectable & one with a SS as big as a grapefruit. They come together when they decide to & its no big deal unless you are feeling ridges in the bones that make up the skull. Skull bones push away from each other to permit growth & don't knit until much later. There are rare kids where they knit prematurely & the location forms a ridge.

In the left side at the top of my head I keep having a jabbing pain sometimes burning. It's only in one small spot and not throughout my left side.

Headache syndrome: You may have a headache syndrome which is different from migraine and tension headaches, given the description of jabbing (aka 'ice pick') pain. There are specific medications that can address these, depending on the type, so please go to your local health care provider to be assessed for these types of headaches.

How can you get of a small spot on your skin if your skin came in direct contact with fire? The spot is old and maybe lighter by now but still there.

Burn marks: There is a little scarring that happens after injury to the skin. It may heal darker or lighter than the surrounding tissue. It will improve with time but can persist for years. Cosmetics may be the best solution if it bothers you.

Just noticed a new, very small, slightly raised spot that looks like a freckle that appeared overnight. I just tried new skin care, could this be why?

Just noticed a new, very small, slightly raised spot that looks like a freckle that appeared overnight. I just tried new skin care, could this be why?

No: That raised bright red spot with sharp margins likely would have happened anyway & will lead to a freckle. You will probably see others as well. If you still have concerns, send us a picture, or see a clinician locally. Hope that helps.

What could cause a stabbing pain in one small spot of my head for 4 days?

What could cause a stabbing pain in one small spot of my head for 4 days?

Depends...: It could be something simple as a run of the mill headache to something more serious. If it does not improve consult with your doctor. If it is associated with more concerning symptoms such as dizziness, blurry/double vision, etc seek urgent medical attention.

My daughter is 4 weeks and my gp said that her soft spot on the head is small . I'm worried about her.

Doesn't matter: The size of the spot can be less than a quarter inch to the size of a baseball. It does not matter as a single feature. If the kids head is growing at a normal rate, and you do not feel ridging along the suture lines you can relax and let baby grow.If the head is not growing or the sutures have ridges it will need an evaluation.

Sounds like: inflammation or irritation. Difficult to say for sure. If symptoms persist, consult with a gyn. You might want to try otc hydrocortisone cream in the meantime.

Perceptual: This may simply be the differential between your hand and the head you are feeling. Doubtful that it has any medical significance.

Eczema or psoriasis: I am not a dermatologist and not an expert on skin conditions. However, this sounds like either eczema or psoriasis. When you have the patch but before you scrape it, make an appointment with a dermatologist.

Hemangioma: Small hemangiomas are common on the chest. They are often related to estrogen production, and they are usually harmless and benign. I wouldn't be worried, but if you notice it changing or growing, I would get checked by a dermatologist.

Adhesive Allergy: While adhesives serve an important role in our daily lives, many people experience itchy rashes after prolonged exposure to adhesives. Glues used for the adhesives are known to cause irritant-based contact dermatitis. These glues are most commonly acrylates, including methacrylates and epoxy diacrylates (also known as vinyl resins). Treatment is with prescription strength topical steroids.

Alopecia areata: This is an autoimmune condition where your immune system attacks the hair follicles and hair falls out leaving round bald spots. Often stress or illness triggers it. It can spread and more hairloss can occur. See a dermatologist for treatment. Ringworm (tinea capitis) usually has inflammation and or scale associated with it.
