My child has a small (extra) hole above each of her ears. My doctor nce told me the name of this condition she was born with, but I forgot. Do you know what this is called? Pus will sometime gather in the hole and I will gently squeeze it to clear the hole
An abnormal hole filled with pus could be the outer opening of a fistula. I believe that your childâs doctor would have written the diagnosis in the medical documentation. You can check in the medical documentation to get clear about what might be causing the condition.
