Question: My 50 days infant has this on right arm? Is this something to worry about ? When I touch him here , he doesn’t cry. It’s not painful at all to him. He is active, taking proper feed and pooping and peeing well also

No need to worry

Thanks for using the Ask A Doctor service.

I have gone through your query and checked the attached image. Is it the right arm or the left? It seems to be the BCG scar. It is not a cause for concern. You need not to worry.

Feel free to write back.
