dd3 was born with what looks like a skin tag on her ear, basically at the entrance to the ear canel. The hospital has aranged for her to have a hearing check and also a scan on her kidneys, as apparently the growth can be linked to kidney problems. Her ear with the growth seems 'floppier' to me compared to her other ear. it looks very odd. has anyone had this themselves or a child with it? the paed also wants to contact the plastic surgery team with a view to possibly removing it, but they have to check its not grown inwards as well.
