A 10-year-old male asked:
4 yr old son has small red bumps around nose and on cheeks. Same bumps on buttocks, painful bowel movements with some bleeding. Any thoughts? Strep?

Strep unlikely: This does not sound like strep. It is hard to make the diagnosis without seeing what the bumps look like. There are a lot of different things which could cause bumps on the cheeks and buttocks. I would recommend seeing a doctor, especially since your son has bloody stools. Good luck!
