Small pimples on back side of body?

Small pimples on back side of body?

Folliculitis: What you are describing sounds a lot like folliculitis (hair follicle infection - mild). Often, the best approach is to use an acne-type body wash with benzoyl peroxide (bpo). Bpo is over-the-counter and well tolerated. Use it in the shower daily and try to leave it on for a couple minutes. If this doesn't help after a week, then see your doctor for help and guidance. ...Read more

Son has 6 small red circles with whitehead n middle all over his body. Any ideas?

Itchy?: I have a few questions. Are they itchy? Was he immunized against the chicken pox? Any other symptoms like fever? The rash you describe sounds like the chicken pox, typically described as "a dew drop on a rose petal" appearance. Even if your son was vaccinated there is such a thing as breakthrough infections, they tend to be very mild. I suggest seeing his doctor to determine the cause. ...Read more

I have a son 3.5 years old and I just noticed all over his body small red pimples, some of them filled with water. What it wold be? And what should I

Chicken pox: It's possible that this is chicken pox. Is he itchy? Fever? With varicella, there are 3 kinds of spots- 1) flat red spots, 2) clear blisters that open easily if you brush them, and 3) broken blisters that start to crust over. Usually, there will be all 3 types within the first day or so. Tepid baths with 2 tbsp of baking soda can help. Call the doctor if there is a high fever or other symptoms. ...Read more

Small cluster of boil like pimples on back. They disappeared when I started to boost my immune system. Itching stops with body powder. Is it my diet?

Small cluster of boil like pimples on back. They disappeared when I started to boost my immune system. Itching stops with body powder. Is it my diet?

Diet unlikely cause: If you are eating a fairly balanced diet then it is unlkely that the lesions are related to your diet. Pimples are more likely related to excessive sweating and plugged pores. A cluster of pimples sounds suspicious for zoster or herpes. If you have a flare up, I advise you to have them evaluated. ...Read more

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

Scabies?: It might be scabies, esp if it's in the webbing between fingers. The bumps look like the pic, and sometimes you will see small red lines or burrows. Permethrin is the tx of choice. However, hand-foot-mouth and contact dermatitis are also possibilities. See a doctor for a more definitive dx. Meanwhile antihistamines like benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Zyrtec will help w the itching. Good luck! ...Read more
