my ds will be 7 months tomorrow and has a black spot on his head, at first I thought it was a little scab from scratching himself but it isn't and it's been there for two weeks now. I'm probably being very pfb but I'm wondering whether to take him to the docs or not. Do you think it could be a mole and I'm worrying about nothing?
It could most certainly be a mole. My DCs were born with one or two, but I have noticed them increasing in number as they grow up. They seem to randomly appear with no apparent warning or reason. I also notice my own appearing occassionally like that too.
Thank you for your reassurance, OH and I are very 'moley' so I did expect him to have some, it's just it's on his head where I can't apply suncream ( very hairy baby!) and he doesn't wear his hat all the time (prefers to eat it in his pram...).
Dd1 had quite a large (5mm) one on her foot at the 6 week check. I remember being concerned. At age 10 it hasn't grown much bigger at all, certainly in relation to the size of the foot. She's been getting a lot more moles in the last couple of years.
