Q:

hiii to all....
my baby 35 days previous week my mother in law cut all hair in head now I see in my baby middle head watering circle swelling can u suggest what is this......



Sonam patel

it might be some kind of infection.. you should check out with your doc..and I dnt think cutting hair of such a small baby is a good idea

Sheeba Vijesh

is it going up and down? that is normal, it is the fontanelle which is a soft spot, and it will get hard when bones fuse, takes a couple of months to above an year. if it is just swelling and getting bigger, take baby to paediatrician asap...

Sonam patel

yes.. softness on head is normal.. it will b fine..but swelling is not normal

Radhika Bisht

Thanks  both of u......

Sheeba Vijesh

so what kind of swelling was it radhika?

Sonam patel

Sheeba Vijesh look at the pic ache se.. you will b able to see the swelling

Sheeba Vijesh

yup i saw sonam patel.

Sonam patel

it doesn't look like fontanelle..

Sheeba Vijesh

can be fluid build up, hope she is not crying when touching. its not infection due to hair cut, cos there are no cuts visible. just show to doc. don't rub or touch the spot, show tomorrow itself. probably nothing to worry dear, it must be just under the skin if its soft to touch...

Radhika Bisht

He is not crying in touch and not give any response. If I oil  massage in head he is normal behaviour....

Sheeba Vijesh

ok radhika... no need to worry... just show doctor to put mind to rest...

Radhika Bisht

mera baby stool mostly 10 to 15 times karta hai n urine b mostly stool watering jaisa hota hai n gas pass karta hai ....

asha chaudhry

hi radhika pls show baby to the dr - that wud be better. and like Sheeba Vijesh says it will put ur mind to rest. tc

Sheeba Vijesh

that is all normal radhika. stools bright yellow colour with whitish seeds hoga naa?

asha chaudhry

tagging Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa & Dr. Payal M for their advise also

Radhika Bisht

Yes it is yellow and white seeds

Dr. Payal M

i see some redness and possibly scraped skin. baby skin is very delicate. n the skull bones are still soft as well. pls get it checked tomm.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello..
as dr.payal said the redness is there...as the baby's scalp is soft n sensitive u shud take ur doc's opinion once..
