My son has yellowish orange spots on the top of his head on his scalp. They are not raised and are the size of a pencil eraser. He does have other symptoms of carotenemia like the orange tinge to the skin on the bottoms of his feet and his palms. He does eat a lot of pureed baby food with beta-carotene. I could not find any symptoms of spots associated with this condition. I am assuming this is carotenemia though unless anyone has any other suggestions. Thanks for the help!
