My son is 6 and has what looks like a skin tag on the side of his head, near his temple...except that it is filled with blood. I have tried to pop it and it just continues to bleed. Whenever he wears a hat, it rubs, and then starts to bleed. It has not changed sizes, but it is annoying. Does anyone know what this is called...or where I can read more info on it?
I don't know what it's called, but it would be best to get it checked out since it does bleed. Anything that can be irritated constantly and easily and has its own blood supply should be checked and removed.
Your son will probably thank you! And it will be biopsied to make sure it's nothing serious.
Best to be on the safe and err on the side of caution.
It's all a matter of perspective!
