Two year old has pimple like bumps on chin and looks like a light rash on chest and back. No fever, no symptoms. What could it be?

Rash: Difficult to know without seeing it. 1 possibility is that it may be staph or strep on his chin, called impetigo with a more generalized rash that often accompanies it. If this is the case he requires antibiotics to protect particularly his kidneys. Have the rash examined and get a confirmed diagnosis to help with his care. All the best in getting this sorted out. ...Read more

My 2 1/2 year old seems to have rash all over his body almost like little red pimples along with he gets fevers what could this be?

Virus or strep: Sounds like a viral or streptococcal infection. The latter is potentially more serious as untreated it may lead to heart, kidney, or nervous system disease. A rapid strep test and, if necessary, a throat culture can make this diagnosis and determine if antibiotics are necessary. You should have your toddler seen by the pediatrician. ...Read more

Viral rash: Although it is impossible to say for sure without actually looking at the rash, the sequence of events (fever, then rash) would suggest that this is a viral rash, such as roseola. If the temperature is coming down and your child is drinking and acting fairly normally, symptomatic treatment and observation are all that are needed. If worried--call your pediatrician! ...Read more

Rash on 2 year old butt and lower back that look like zits. What do I do?

Rash on 2 year old butt and lower back that look like zits. What do I do?

Variety of causes: The "zits" description leaves a lot to the imagination. This could be bites (flea, ant), yeast (candida albicans), hives (allergic) or a mild skin infection from skin germs, or bites originally that became infected later. If these do not fade over a few days and or continue to enlarge or incrase in number, an office evaluation is worth while. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 2 year old to have acne all over her cheeks and chin? She was born like this and we were told it was just a hormone rash. She is otherwise healthy.

Is it normal for a 2 year old to have acne all over her cheeks and chin? She was born like this and we were told it was just a hormone rash. She is otherwise healthy.

No: Sometimes newborn rashes are due to hormones but age 2 years is too long. Ask your doctor again and be referred to a specialist such as dermatology or neurology. All the best. ...Read more

My two year old eyes are red and it looks likes there's a pimple inside. What's the cause of that, he's not scratching them. Please help.

My two year old eyes are red and it looks likes there's a pimple inside. What's the cause of that, he's not scratching them. Please help.

Need more info: If the white of the eyes is red and there is discharge, it is conjunctivitis, or pink eye, which is a viral or bacterial infection and usually treated with prescription eye drops. If there is redness and swelling of just the eyelid with a pimple, that is consistent with a stye or hordeolum and warm compresses help to resolve. An exam would be very helpful and recommended. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: There are a few causes for rash described on your 2 y.o. child however not enough detail is given to make a diagnosis. Additionally diagnosing a rash without visual inspection is challenging & a detailed medical history is important. Keratosis Pilaris, Molluscum Contagiosum, & Milia are 3 conditions that may match based on the minimal info given. See your doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

There: There is a possibility that she could have molluscum contagiousum which is caused by a wart like virus. They look like little red or flesh colored bumps with a small hole in the middle that occasionally has a white, thick discharge. It commonly affects children and usually goes away within a year without treatment. Picking or squeezing them can cause spreading and/or an infection, so it is not advised. Below I've attached a website with more information about them.

If the spots start to develop on her face, appear to be infected, seem to be worsening, or if you think they are not molluscum, then give her doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

My 2 year old son also has 3 tiny bumps like pimples on his belly they don't bother him but he's had themfor months and are not going away.?

Need to see: Skin lesions usually need to be seen for proper diagnosis. But if they're unchanged and have been there for months, they're most likely warts. Have your doctor check them at next check up or if they increase in number or size. Or change in character. ...Read more

I get cold sores on my lips, is it possible that I have given them to my 2 year old? He also has dots (kinda like pimples) on his face also.

I get cold sores on my lips, is it possible that I have given them to my 2 year old? He also has dots (kinda like pimples) on his face also.

Possible: It is possible to spread a cold sore to your child by kissing when there are active lesions. The dots should all be clustered and resemble a cold sore. If the "pimples" are more scattered, it is more likely to be a skin infection like folliculitis or impetigo, which is treated with oral or topical antibiotics. ...Read more

Could molluscum: Molluscum contagiosum is a viral infection that cause a warty like papule that has a central indent (umbilication). These are benign, and can spontaneously improve, usually over weeks, not minutes. These could also be allergic type reaction. Should be checked at some time when he has them to get correct diagnosis. ...Read more

My 4 1/2 year old had a lil red bump on chin. Is it possible for a toddler to get lil pimples? It's not pus filled at all..

Younger children: Don't get acne the way a teen or adult does. However, there are other causes for a red bump. If it's still there and becomes crusty or fluid-filled, you should see his/her doctor to make sure it's not impetigo. It could also be an inflamed hair follicle or skin cyst. If it's gone, no worries...unless it comes back. ...Read more

2 year old has a white pimple on jaw under tongue. Has cold/cough now and has been scratching around his neck and back of legs. What is this pimple?

MD and DDS: First have your child seen by your pediatrician or family physician, who can evaluate the entire situation. If your physician feels that he\she should also be seen by a pedodontist (pediatric dentist), that would be a good idea also. I hope your child has already been seen by one, which is recommended by this time anyway. We can't diagnose the pimple without actually seeing it. ...Read more

My 7 year old son has a red pimple looking rash on his chin but it is not itchy. Any suggestions?

My 7 year old son has a red pimple looking rash on his chin but it is not itchy. Any suggestions?

Yes: Leave it alone. My rule of thumb is, if a rash bothers the patient, it needs to be treated. If the rash bothers the patient's mother but the patient is otherwise fine, it can be watched to see if it improves on its own. Often, they do. If it shows no sign of getting better or it bothers him, see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm a 26 year old male I used honey mixed with cinnamon on my pimple scars and now there is a rash I used piriton but yet the bumps are visible thanks?

Topical Steroid Crea: I would obviously stop the honey and cinnamon. Piriton is a topical anti-histamine but you may want to also cosnider use of a topical steroid such as 1% Hydrocortisone which is the maximal over the counter strength available in the usa (i note piriton is available in the uk and I am not familar with their regulations or formualtions.) if you see no response or worsening within 3-5 days, seek md. ...Read more

My 7 year old daughter has had a sore throat and flu symptoms last week now she has a small pimple type rash all over her face I've looked online and?

Need more info: Most of the symptoms described sound like a virus and so it is hard to say for sure without more information or picture. If there is fever present right now and sore throat I would recommend seeing your doctor for strep testing. If the testing is negative then they will likely tell you to give fluids and rest and supportive care. ...Read more

My two month old has a rash that looks like very small pimples and is very red and in some places its blochy and red. Is this normal if what's going on?

Patience: The baby acne is a common event that reflects hormones transferred during the pregnancy. While the baby is floating in moisture, the skin is will not respond, but within weeks of birth they break out for many weeks before the hormone levels begin to drop ; the acne disappears. Keeping the skin clean ; avoiding irritating soaps helps. Occasional use of a 1/2% hc once daily can calm some lesions. ...Read more

Folliculitis?: Superficial skin infections usually are due to common skin bacteria, sometimes staph or strep. Surgical wounds can increase skin bacterial growth which might persist after healing, so conceivably related to the mole removal. But this is a common condition regardless of past surgery and that makes no difference now in prevention or treatment. Try antibacterial soap, see a doctor if nothing changes. ...Read more
