I have an area on the top of my head (where a baby's soft spot is) that is indented and it hurts very badly when I touch it. Is this serious?

Indentation: At your age you should not have a soft spot in your skull. I would see your doctor and possible a skull film to examine the thickness of your bone in your skull. It is possible you have an infection in your scalp but typically that would cause the skin to swell or stick out and bulge, not indent in. ...Read more

May be a pimple.: There may be a skin lesion at that tender site, that you are not aware of. It could be a pimple, or you may have scratched yourself with a comb or brush, or something else.

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

Hit my head very hard on a car trunk 5 hrs ago - no symptoms, but now have a sore spot on one side when I touch it & also hurts when I bend over. Ok?

Contusion: most likely. Put a cold pack on the sore spot so you don't get a lump, and don't take any aspirin (which can increase the bleeding). If you develop dizziness, nausea/vomiting, or difficulty concentrating be sure to see your doctor. Soreness should slowly resolve over the next few days. ...Read more
