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

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

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

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

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..

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
