My 13 year old son has had a shunt since birth. He is active and remarkable and currently is running cross country. My question is this. He is almost constantly scratching the part of his head where his shunt is located. I have asked him if it itches or hurts, bur he says no. He has a bit of trouble localizing and describing pain, however. Can anyone enlighten me? Is this common? Thanks.
