Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
this is a fistula and normally seen in many children
no need to worry
this is developmental problem
you will have to wait for some years to decide it will go
if it doesnot go ad is silent no problem
if it gives symptomps of discharge swelling orpain
then we have to decide accordingly
