White Salt Marks On Face After Crying

My 5 year old has high blood pressure (on meds) but he also had Wilm's Tumor (only right kidney left) in the last couple of days when he cries there are white salt marks on his face from his dried up tears. Should I be Concerned?????

Answer

Hi Concerned Mom,

If this is something new since beginning medication/diagnosis I recommend you contact his physician. Tears due contain low levels of sodium, but it's still appropriate to discuss wtih a physician.

All the best,
