Conditions with symptom: 'birth defect'
After watching the programme, it really raised our worries, our 2 year old daughter has had what we pressumed was a birth defect, her bum line went round her right bum cheeck rather than just finishing between them both. This gives her one cheeck bigger than the other. Her walking is not too great, she tends to hobble when she runs and has been walking for nearly a year. Does this sound to anyone who has experienced this to be DDH?
hi deborah i would certainly go and get it checked by a doctor my daughter was diagnosed at 17 months and is still undergoing treatment. we first noticed when she started walking with severe limp and one bum check slightly larger than than the other. they surgessted at first it was just a diffrence in leg lengh but eventually after pestering got seen by an othapedic surgen and recived the diagnosis of ddh if you have any worries i would certainly go and get it check hope this helps laura
Hi, my 5 months old niece has got a lump on her forehead, it's been there sinse her birth. We don't know what it is and if it would go away itself. It's hard when she cries and soft when she's relaxed. Do you have any idea what it could be so we could search medication. Thank you

my son is 6 months old and has the same sort of mark on his head, we were told it must be a birth mark but none of the proffessionals seem to of seen one like this which i found strange. the way you have described this is exactly how my sons is not bumpy like the boy on the show. what should i do?
I have one and i can tell you from experience, most doctors and even some of the dermatologists i have seen over the years have never come across one! If it is a sebaceous naevus they are generally pinky orange and quite smooth until puberty then they become a bit more warty/bumpy in texture. If you are cocerned I advise you speak to a dermatologist.
Hello, I'm 14 and I have a brown birth mark on the side of my wrist, I've had this lump on it for ages never really thought anything of it,but occasionally i catch it and it hurts. I also get hairs on it and get really self conscious about it so i do pluck them. You see loads of programs that say get them checked out and it always worry's me, What do you think i should do? Thanks (:

my child is 14 and has now had asthma since birth, i heard that asthma is meant to get better over time but hers has been getting worse. It upsets her because she loves sport but cannot even manage jumping on the trampoline for 3 mins without having to use her inhaler. she uses her inhalers properly. does anyone know any other ways to help her out ?
I have a birth mark on my head! I get bullied because of it I get remarks such as 'squashed bean' because that's what it looks like! I am also having a wart growing on it (at least I think its a wart) and I am really conscious! I am 16 years old and I've been bullied since I started school what should I do I really need to get rid of it!
I am having a birthmark in brown color on the side of my face. I use to cover it with my hair. But now I use a foundation it's really good it's name is camouflage. you should use it too it will really help you to cover your mark.
I have the same one as you :( why do I have this
There are creams and stretching methods which would be less extreme, especially as you say with no infections. There is a rare condition that affects my husband's family where they have little to no opening, my stepson was around 6 I think when he was circumcised, he had problems from birth, was getting infections and his foreskin ballooning with trapped urine. Circumcision was still the last option.
My 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at birth & went into a Pavlik harness. She now goes for annual check ups & after being given the all clear at least a year ago. We have just received a letter saying that her next appointment has been brought forward as on her last X Ray there was slightly unusual appearance of the scrum & a loaded rectum with the presence of bilateral CDH - what does this mean??
