Q.

armpit lump removal

I took my 4month to th doc as u advised n was referred to a surgeon who says its an enlarged sweat gland tht will need toi be removed regardless of pain as an infection may occur.
My question is what can I give my baby for pain at 4months?
Is ther anyting safe to give other than panado?
I''m very uncomfortable with having to do this-esp since he''s so small!
Plz advise-shud I get a second opinion?
Thnx

This is unlikely to be an infected sweat gland in such a young baby. A BCG abscess is much more likely and this does not require removal and will get better on its own with time.Please get a second opinion.
