Hello doctor,

I am a 19-year-old female. When my mom was pregnant, her brother hit her tummy by mistake with a ball as he was playing cricket. My mom had felt some strong movements at that time, and I feel this is the reason why I have had a small bump on my head since childhood. It does not pain. It does not cause me any headaches, etc. It is in skin color. The only thing is that I can feel pus inside when I touch, and as I touch hard, the pus that comes out it is slightly yellowish and cloudy. Can it be treated with antibiotics or creams?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There is no relation between the ball hitting your mother during pregnancy and the lesion on your head. From your history, it seems likely to be a sebaceous cyst (nothing serious). As there is pus currently, you can use antibiotics.

I suggest showing it to a physician close to home and getting it examined.
