Spot Back Head
4 month old has mild flat spot on back of head. How do I correct this? Will it even out when she sits up more?
Plagiocephaly: it is not uncommon for babies to develop flat spots on their heads early on. Make sure your baby gets "tummy time" every day. That takes the pressure of those areas and also encourages development of neck and torso strength - both of which are vital for being able to sit unsupported. Most times these flat spots go away once the baby spends less time flat on their back. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My 6 year old has a tender spot in back of his head since 3 days ago, it hurts when he touch it, what it could be?
See his doctor: It sounds like it could be a skin infection, perhaps from a bug bite. Depending on how large it is, if it is getting worse day by day, and how tender it is, he may just need antibiotics to treat it. If your doctor thinks it is an abscess (a pocket of pus in the skin), they may want to drain out the fluid. That will make it easier to treat with less pain. Warm packs and pain relief can also help. ...Read more

Nothing: Without seeing the spot in person it's difficult to provide a certain diagnosis. Many babies are born with "stork bites" -red/salmon colored areas - on the back of their necks/heads. It is a birthmark and nothing to worry about and will fade over time on it's own. If you are still concerned please have a pediatrician evaluate it before subjecting your baby to unnecessary and potentially harmful tx ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably nothing: You have probably bumped or irritated the "spot" in some manner. Have someone look to see if there is anything visable. If not, give it a while. Remember, in medicine, something bad usually does not go away and gets worse and becomes apparent, if it goes away, it was nothing to start with. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
