    joshua has had a blotchy face for ages but when i asked HV she said ooh its normal.
    well i took joshua to get weighed on tuesday and i mentioned about his face and she prescribed him some cream.

    well it has eased it loads but hubby was rubbing the cream around his neck after he had done his face and just under the skin there is a little lump.

    i dont know wether to worry or not.

    im gonna call the doctors first thing on monday but last time i took him to the doctors coz he had a rash on his ear and was speading the doctor told me to go back the net day if it hadnt got any better, so the net day i took him back as it wasnt any better and the doctor i saw then moaned at me for wasting her time.

    now im worried they will turn around and say im wasting their time again.

    what could the lump be?

    If you feel it's something to get checked out by the doctor then go ahead and phone them on Monday.

    I hate that GP's make us feel that we can't see them in case we "waste their time".

    NEVER EVER worry about wasting anyones time over your babies health! EVER! & if anyone makes you feel like this you make a formal complaint and seek future advice from another (either new consultant request, new GP, new GP surgery).

    If your worried you need to act on it silly or not!

    i couldn't agree more. never worry about wasting time, babies health is far more important, its disgusting they make you feel that way (in fact my MW was the same!!) how's joshua now? :hugs:

    Yes they should never make you feel like that! The lump may be a swollen lymphnode gland...I get them quite a bit since I have bad allergies or am beginning to get a cold. I'm almost positive thats probably what it is and if so, no need to be alarmed. It will go back eventually! :) If you are worried though, get it checked out. It doesn't hurt!
