Contact dermatitis: Strange distribution....I would like a description but most common scenario would be that the toddler was reacting to something that contacted both sites, such as poison ivy in the woods in summertime. Secondly, perhaps new topical cream was used by mother, however moms don't usually use the same cream for diaper area and body. ...Read more

My son has a circle on his tongue, white-ish in the middle and red around it. Is this ringworm? His is 2 years old

No: Ringworm does not effect the tongue. What you are likely seeing is a patchy loss of some of the older tongue surface cells which happens from time to time. It can produce a rather odd appearance to the tongue. The common term for the issue is "geographic tongue" as it often looks like continents separated by oceans (oxymetazoline). ...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
