It's natural to start imagining all the worst possibilities - which is why you need to take her to your GP to put your mind at rest. They won't think you're a prat - my GPs have always said they would rather see a baby than have the mother worrying.
may be wrong, but friends ds kept getting lumps on his face head and ears when teething(mainly back teeth), doctor confirmed this on several occasions!, would check to put your mind at rest put it sounds like the same thing
at docs tomorrow but so worried as she has been a little off today.
the lump is hard to touch as though its got a small pea inside the ear lobe ] think thats what you call it, the soft bit where you would have ear peirced but on the edge] and its dark purple in colour......resembles a blood blister colour...its not a blister though....too hard.
Could it be a little birth mark? When DD was born she had no marks on her fingers but one did develop on the side of her third finger next to the nail and affected most of the tip. It went dark purple and was swollen and I was told that it would fade gradually. Well it did and until I read this thread I had almost forgotten about it.
could be a little hemangioma which is a long word for nothing to worry about. my ds2 had one which appeared on his head at about 2 months old and grew to about big pea sized, and then slowly shrunk over the next year or less. don't know exactly when it went because he grew hair over it and I stopped checking - then one day I remembered and it had gone!
something to do with a little swelling at the end of a capillery or something. but best to check with gp
