8 week old Infant with Scalp Rash

hello i am looking to chat with a pediatrician .. My 8 week old infant developed a red hot looking rash on her scalp. She has no other symptoms and is both bottle and breast fed. Her rash appears to have small bumps and seems worse when she cries. Her complexion is otherwise perfect. The face , abdomen , legs, arms, back, and diaper area are totally unaffected. i should note that she does not seem to be uncomfortable. Any clues? Kate

Hi Kate, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
Seems your kid has a hemangioma. Please describe other symptoms also like if it is increasing, exact location, was there a reddish spot at time of birth or later. Please consult your pediatrician ASAP, & take a dermatologist's consultation also.
