Question: 3yr has a sore

 brooke24 - Sat Oct 29, 2005 10:41 pm

My daughter has a sore in the back of her head that want go away. It started out as a red bump and then a few days later I noticed that it was still red but it had a white place in the middle of it. It sort of looked like a white head pimple and it bothered her if it was touched. It went away andt it wasn't red anymore but it had a lot of dry skin. What should I do?

It's better if you go see a dermatologist, because it could be the result of a scalp infection that may recur.
