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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 3 and a half week old son has small red pimples all over his face, arms, scalp, the back of his neck & a little on his legs. Is this baby acne?

If any sites are more inflamed or persistent, your doc should evaluate. It should fade completely by 3 mo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was bathing my 3 month 4 week old son and noticed purple marks ,"looks like bruises", on the bottom of both his feet is that normal?
No.: It is not unusual to see a diffuse bluish color to the feet if the baby gets a little chilled or if you are holding him upright and gripping him snugly by the thighs, but the discoloration clears with warmth or position change. Bluish purple marks on the lower back and butt called Mongoloan spots are present from birth. Does it wash off? Dye from socks can stain. If not, consider injury.

7mth old baby not eating, diarrhoea, very unsettled his eczema has flared up and has white sort of bumps on the inside of his cheeks (mouth)?
Dehydration?: Infants can easily become dehydrated, especially if they are not eating and having diarrhea. This can happen quickly, can be very concerning, and warrants a visit to the doctor. Viruses are common in this age group and can cause decreased oral intake, diarrhea and oral sores (among many other symptoms). Fungal infections (candida/oral thrush) can present with white patches on buccal mucosa. ...Read more

My son has red, pus filled pimples that began on the back of his left hand. Theyve moved up his left arm. They itch now. And are now on both arms/hand?
Chickenpox? Staph?: Chickenpox usually involves face and trunk as well as arms or legs. But the rash appears in crops and "red, pus filled pimples" is typical. If he has been properly vaccinated, including chickenpox, it's something else. A staph or strep infection is possible. Whatever the cause, it needs medical attention right away. Call his pediatriican's office today; even over the weekend, someone is on call. ...Read more
My son has a stomach virus and he has cherry looking cheeks with redness on his nose. Side effect maybe?
Does he have a fever: with the virus? The red cheeks and nose could be from a fever if that is the case. It also could be from vomiting itself, or from the virus that is causing his symptoms (which I assume are vomiting and diarrhea?). If the rash continues or spreads, I would call his doctor and have him examined. ...Read more

Its a good and normal way for the body to screen out infections or other inflammatory condiitons form invading further into the body. If they keep getting bigger, have doc check them out. ...Read more
