Patient : Hi. My 8 yr old son has had a spot on the back of his thigh for several months. Started with a yellow middle and when i squeezed it there was a fatty core sticking out which seemed attached, finally got the core out but it was still raised as if something was in it. It doesn't pus or bleed. Took him to the doc 2 days ago and they gave me cream, said it looks like a fungal infection. Ive used the cream a few times and now it is inflamed with a black dot in the middle. Im really concerned it may be something sinister. Please give a second opinion. Thank you. Rebecca
