So apparently my toddler was born with something called a dermoid cyst.
I noticed it only when he was 2 (not 2 months, 2 years old!). I was looking at him and noticed a small lump by his inner eye.
I started researching up and right, asking on line. It was in the middle of the pandemic and we had a Zoom visit with his pediatrician who dismissed it as a clogged tear duct or a stye.
I wasn’t satisfied. I knew it was neither.
I researched and researched and researched for weeks till I found something that looked similar. It was called dermoid cyst.
I found a small Facebook group dedicated to this subject and I joined it.
I quickly learned that dermoid cysts usually are formed in the womb from extra skin and hair tissues and they mostly present as a pit in the middle of the nose.
