Hi! How’s your son? A preauricular tag is a small skin tag or pit in front of the outside part of the ear and yes, they are commonly seen in newborn infants. In most cases, these are normal. However, both preauricular tags and pits can be associated with other problems. That is why your doctor will remove them because these could be a source of infection. Don’t worry this is not connected to your baby’s kidney or anything. And the skin tag will be removed soon.
I hope this helps. Take care and kisses to your son.
Thank you for your comment that does help a great deal i didn't realise they could cause infection, my son is good in every way and they bother me alot more than they bother him thanks again
I wonder how the recovery after the removal of the ear tags. My son is about 16 months, and he's scheduled for removal by the end of the month. Any advice?! Thanks a lot.
was wondering how your son did in the removal of the ear tags. I have a grandson 2 years and he was born with one on each ear. the doctor told them to wait when he was little to remove them as they caused no danger,
