black raised bump with red around it on my 8 yr olds head
My son play baseball and is a catcher. Last summer when I cut his hair short I notice a pea size raised black bump on his head. My friend (in medicine) said it is probably a piece of dirt that got into his pores from taking his helmet on and off. I put heat packs on it and cleaned it. It went down a little, ball season ended, his hair grew out and I simple forgot. I gave him his summer cut last night and the bump is still there. As large as before and it has a red outline around it. I am worried. He said it hurts to touch. He is a very active kid and plays non stop - doesn't complain about anything. I just don't think this looks like a piece of dirt under the skin. It is above his left ear.

Call a dermatologist and get it checked out.
The red around it indicates its inflamed.
Know your ABCD which stands for asymmetry,
