My son has had a lump in his arm since he was about 4 months. He had a fever of 104.3 one night...it ended up being a sever ear infection...but this was the first time i noticed it... we pointed it out when we took him to the ER and they said it was a fever rash. He is now 15 months and it is still there. Most the time it is barely visable...it blends with the skin, it a tad raised, and has a lot of hair on it, but every now and then ( I can't seem to figure out what the trigger is, it almost seems like it is heat?) it will become very raised and extremely hard, with a slight red tint to it...about the same as a babies face gets when they are screaming...the splotchy red. His Dr. Keeps trying to say it is exzema, but it is not at all scaly or dry. There is no doubt in my mind it is not that. Whatever this may be is under the skin, and is almost like a lump of tissues or something. Please help!
