We have only had the Pediatrician involved in son's 4 H's. What kind of specialist do you see? The one on his head looks like it may be ulcerating. (he is 5 months old and wears a corrective remolding helmet which has scraped the H)
Would the Pediatrician be able to deal with an ulceration?
I have no idea where to start as we have been told from day 1 that the H's are nothing to worry about.
my suggestion especailly if your son has 4 external is to take him to a vascular specialist. especailly if it is ulcerating. you might want to think about geting an mri to see if there are any internal ones as well.
