View Full Version : Unknown Bump on 8month old

05-31-2013, 09:38 PM
Our son got this bump around 4 months and it has been present in some form since then. It doesn't bother him but it concerns us (we have an appointment but couldn't get in for a few weeks). Sometimes it looks pretty bad, like in the pictures, other times it's just a red bump without the yellow 'bubbles'. The pediatrician thinks it's a birthmark.
Any ideas?

Hi Scott!welcome to DermaTalk. The lesions seems like solitary mastocytoma, which occurs within 6 months after birth. The biopsy and histopathological report is confirmatory. As you are visiting the dermatologist, I hope he will help us confirm the diagnosis and treat accordingly.Hope you will let us know the result, we will be happy to hear from you.

Went to the dermatologist this past week, and he also diagnosed it as solitary mastocytoma.
