  • If it's gone from painfree to painful then I'd suggest you take him to see his Doc

  • do you think it could be his birthmark??? I have no clue, but just get it checked out by the dr, and if it's sensitive to the touch, offer him a cold pack....

    using a cold pack tends to make the blood not gather in that area, or atleast do so in a smaller manner, therefore causing less pain to that area....hang in there mom!

  • I would be upset and scared too. I am not sure I could wait but I would call his doctor right away. My mind would race with thoughts from bad to worse. And I have for varous different things that came up. Of course you will see the doctor. Until then if the pain is worse or it changes in size, color, ect...if it were me I would be at the ER. But I also panic. So act calm, even though it is scary, and make it to the doctor's office. If changes happen go the ER or urgent care.
