My baby has a bump looks like a pimple on his left cheek and on the back of his left leg? What could this be?

Depends: How old is your baby? The first few months of life babies can get many different lesions, most of which are considered normal and expected to go away if left alone. If it is red at the base, growing in size/number, appears tender (hurts if touched) then it needs to be evaluated by his doctor. http://www.babycenter.com/101_visual-guide-to-childrens-rashes-and-skin-conditions_10332129.bc ...Read more

It turned black: because you created a blood scab. It has persisted for 3 weeks perhaps because you are picking at it. This will cause the inflammation to become chronic and increase likelihood of scarring. The best thing for you to do is use a gentle facial cleanser (do NOT scrub), 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, and a light facial moisturizer everyday, and LEAVE IT ALONE. Seek dermatologist advice if that fails. ...Read more

May be a skin cyst: A bump on the skin that has whitish stuff inside, but is not pus as in a pimple, is likely a skin cyst that contains skin oils and skin cells. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can look at it to see what can be done. Sometimes, keeping the cyst empty for a while will allow it to shrink in size. Other times, a bothersome cyst needs surgical removal. ...Read more

Scar tissue: Pimples are inflammation (irritation). When you popped it you may have caused some of this irritation to go down further into the fatty cells. There the body formed small amount of scar tissue to form. Gently massage area daily but I would have your MD check it out to make sure. Please don't pick/pop pimples - it often causes things to get worse! Ask your MD for medicine to help acne. ...Read more
