What do itchy lumps on head of a child indicate? - Online Doctor Chats
Thanks a lot for making some time Dr
How can I help you ?
I need a urgent help
My son is 5 year old and suddenly I saw small small lumps on his head and he is having itching in it
Ok, How big is the bump ?
I also saw some hard patch kind of thing on his back and stomach as well
looks to me around 2 cm radius circle
even his forehead has 3-4 lumps
What colour is the patch ?
its colouless..its like He bumped his head against the wall and soon developed a lump
behind ear, its slightly rad in colour
Since when have you been noticing them ?
its almost 2 hours now
Give him a dose of antihistaminic medication, that will take care
morning I notiched some on his thighs and thought its urticaria
is it a serious condition Dr?
yes, it could be urticaria itself
Need not worry. Its not serious
Its for sure an allergic reaction
that's the big relief Dr
and will wane of once the allergen is removed
I have Citrigen 5 mg at this point of time...is it antihistaminic ?
Yes it is
can I give 1 dose of it now?
If its 5mg per 5 ml then give him 2 ml now and repeat 2 ml after 6 hours.
I have tablets
so can I give 1/2 tablet?
yes, then give him a half tablet
the next half after 6 to 8 hours
baby may feel drously due to the medication
need not worry there
thanks a lot Dr for your valuable diagnosis..you gave a big relief
Is there anything else you want to know about ?
no Dr...I'll give him a dose as directed and consult you again in case needed
thanks a lot
Wish you good health
Bye for now
