Should I be concerned?

 So I noticed that DS has a tiny little bump on the crease where his left wrist and hand meet.  I asked his pedi about it and he told me that it was a tiny fluid filled cyst. He said it was  a little unusual that it was on his wrist because most babies get them on their faces. He said not to worry as it will go away on it's own.

Well now I have noticed DS has another one of these cysts, only this time it is on his right hand and on his thumb. 

I am wondering if I should be worried as the bumps/cysts seem to be spreading??   Should I take him to a dermatologist maybe?  I can take him to mine the next time I go to have some moles removed and have the doctor look at it real quick..What do u ladies think? Should I be worried that he went from having 1 to 2 of these?  I noticed the first one in October or so and the second one seemed to appear a few days ago.

I would ask the Pedi again...tell him he has another one! I have heard about these and believe they just go away on their own but you should ask about it again...or look it up on Web MD!

I would ask the doc again. It has been my experience that they do go away on their own, but take what seems like forever!!

They will go away on their own.  Nothing to be alarmed about but if it makes you rest better, ask your derm.
