Is it normal for an adult to have soft spot on top of head sometimes I feel it and sometimes not?

Yes: Some people's fontanelles never totally close. Other people have inborn defects in the skull. Toulouse-lautrec's fontanelle remained very wide open, which is why he always wore the hat. Or you may be feeling a cyst. Your personal physician can advise whether imaging is worthwhile. ...Read more

I was born w/ no soft spot and as a result had big forhead when l was a baby and know asan adult I have no head deformaties. Do I have craniocynostosi?

Craniosynostosis: You made your own diagnosis, but its a shame that it might have not been discovered in infancy... At this point you cannot do anything to change that. The skull is formed and that's all the room you get for your brain! However, if you have neurological symptoms like seizures, learning problems (developmental delay) you probably should consult a neurologist and properly review your medical history. ...Read more

Have 3 flu hemangiomas on liver. As adult only I'm getting lots of small red spots filled with blood all over body, face and scalp. Due to liver? Name?

Probably nothing: If the red spots on your skin are cherry hemangiomas / "Campbell de Morgan spots", relax, they mean absolutely nothing. Maybe one person has a hemangioma or two or three in the liver and it's a non-issue itself -- a Gorbachev birthmark, a curiosity. Be thankful for good health. ...Read more

I finally got my adult acne under control using epiduo gel but now I have dark spots on my face from breaking out before. Will the retin A (tretinoin) help?

Actually it may.: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is improved with topicals that turnover the top layer of skin like all retinoids do. I like to combine Retinoic acid with lightening agents to get the most power and improvement. Beta hydroxy acid peels help a lot too. ...Read more

Keep getting pricking pain at the back of my head where the part in my hair is. I wear my hair up quite a bit. Also get the pains other spots on head?

Keep getting pricking pain at the back of my head where the part in my hair is. I wear my hair up quite a bit. Also get the pains other spots on head?

The main thing: To differentiate here is whether this is coming from a skin condition such a dryness/seborrheic dermatitis or from a nerve problem such as a superficially compressed nerve near your neck. If there is no rash or skin signs, I would suspect the latter. Getting the prickling/pain in multiple spots makes evaluation even more necessary. This is something you should see your doctor about. Good wishes:) ...Read more
