Ok strange question. I noticed my sons head tastes salty when I kiss him. Is this normal or is it a sign of Cystic Fibrosis? I just remember reading it somewhere but I thought we all taste salty LOL

Oh and he is 21 mos and has normal stools and weight is on the chart following same curve!

  • It is a sign of Cystic Fibrosis, but if his stools are normal it's probably not that.
