Soft spot on head, pains, normal mri reports

My 8 year old boy has some soft spots on his head, you can t touch his hair or head even can t comb him because he has a lot of pain . Normally without touching the head he don t have pain. Some little head pain normal. I went last year with him to a neurologist , he went through an MRI and the Dr said that there were no any negative results and maybe it s a growing problem. Can u please help me with some concrete answer? thanks Emely

Hi Emely,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Usually around 8 years there will be no soft spots in the skull.
The pain sites could be due to local infection of the scalp such as pyoderma.
Examine his scalp for any tender points or skin lesions.
If you find any spots consult the pediatrician for further examination and treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
