My daughter has large red spot below iris.The spot doesn't change the color.Will this problem remain as she grows ?

Hi, my baby daughter was born with a red large spot, just below the iris. It is covered by the eyelid, but when she looks up we can see the spot clearly. She s almost 9 months now. The spot doesn t seem to change the color, it s a strong pink salmon color (like a pale red). Our pediatrician told us to monitor the spot, but we are worried that it grows as our baby grows bigger. What this can be?

Ma'am you need to see an ophthalmologist , as it can be a sub conjuntival haemorrage or can be a growth that needs attention . As far as the size n color you are explaining it can be nothing to something which requires urgent attention

Yes. I have lots of blood red spots on my chest & stomach and other places of my body. They seem to be spreading. They are not painful but I worry because they are spreading. OF COURSE SOMEONE told me it meant I have kidney problems. So far I do not.

My daughter had a small red area to come upon her arm. Over a period of days it started getting sore , bigger and it turned into a scab. It bleed just a little and had a scant amt of drainage. I put Neosporin on it and covered it up while she was at school it s now been going on three weeks the scab has gotten bigger. It s went from the size of a small pea to a half dollar. She now has 4 to 5 small red flat places scattered below the area just like this spot began. She has two spots underneath her arm that started out red spots and now they have scabs the size of a pencil eraser. The scabs are thick and bulky. She states her arm is sore feeling when she moves it.

Doctor 2 weeks ago said he didn t see anything.. but will be going back to doctors again tomorrow, but very concerned today. Otherwise very healthy delivery and overall health. Eating and pooping and peeing fine. Thank you.

I have a tiny white spot on the bottom of my iris, sometimes its painful, there is reddness around it. Sometimes they go away and then come back in another area. My eye has been really dry when I wake up in the morning and this is when it is the reddest. Nothing is wrong with my vision.
