My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Sawyer has fluid on his neck.

Can you send a picture of the area? This can be very helpful to figure out what is going on.

Also, did you separate the hair to look directly as the skin to see if there is any redness? Is he scratching the area a lot?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you tonight.
