Gland or a cist?

My baby girl (7 months), has this bump at the back of her head. It started off very small but is now as big as a pea but yellow of colour. My paed said I should not worry, but it looks to me like it is growing. Should I just apply bactroban or just leave it for now?

Regards

Dear Annecke
It may just be a harmless fat gland - keep an eye on it - if it gets bigger or infected, ask your GP to refer you to a surgeon to remove if needed
