The skin folds in the baby’s neck may also be the result of a candida yeast infection and neck rashes on babies. This fungal infection thrives in the warm moist environment of the baby’s neck that keeps the moisture after bathing. It is recommended to keep the area dry and use an antifungal to clear off the infection, to treat this skin condition.
The Infant Swim Neck Float has a place in early water experiences. With as little as 20-30 minutes in the water every day, your baby will, through his or her own movements, increase muscle tone and improve ability to move, grow and develop

for special needs babies sells the float and a "pool" that you can set up in your bathroom.
The keyhole wings 30, 32 can be spread to accommodate any infant neck size, and when positioned on the infant, the soft, pliable and flexible nature of the infant head support pillow 10 conforms to the infant's shape giving the infant comfortable albeit effective head support. Further, the size, shape and materials used in the infant head support pillow 10 of the present invention remove any worry as to accidental suffocation of the infant.
Neck masses in children usually fall into one of three categories: developmental, inflammatory/reactive, or neoplastic. Common congenital developmental masses in the neck include thyroglossal duct cysts, branchial cleft cysts, dermoid cysts, vascular malformations, and hemangiomas. Inflammatory neck masses can be the result of reactive lymphadenopathy, infectious lymphadenitis (viral, staphylococcal, and mycobacterial infections; cat-scratch disease), or Kawasaki disease. Common benign neoplastic lesions include pilomatrixomas, lipomas, fibromas, neurofibromas, and salivary gland tumors. Although rare in children, malignant lesions occurring in the neck include lymphoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, thyroid carcinoma, and metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Workup for a neck mass may include a complete blood count; purified protein derivative test for tuberculosis; and measurement of titers for Epstein-Barr virus, cat-scratch disease, cytomegalovirus, human immunodeficiency virus, and toxoplasmosis if the history raises suspicion for any of these conditions. Ultrasonography is the preferred imaging study for a developmental or palpable mass. Computed tomography with intravenous contrast media is recommended for evaluating a malignancy or a suspected retropharyngeal or deep neck abscess. Congenital neck masses are excised to prevent potential growth and secondary infection of the lesion. Antibiotic therapy for suspected bacterial lymphadenitis should target and group A streptococcus. Lack of response to initial antibiotics should prompt consideration of intravenous antibiotic therapy, referral for possible incision and drainage, or further workup. If malignancy is suspected (accompanying type B symptoms; hard, firm, or rubbery consistency; fixed mass; supraclavicular mass; lymph node larger than 2 cm in diameter; persistent enlargement for more than two weeks; no decrease in size after four to six weeks; absence of inflammation; ulceration; failure to respond to antibiotic therapy; or a thyroid mass), the patient should be referred to a head and neck surgeon for urgent evaluation and possible biopsy.
