Caleb keeps getting a bump on his knee, like a pimple , eventually it pops but is very painful. What could this be? What is the best way to treat?

Abscess: You may have skin infection going on. The pimple has spread inflammation around and that's what causes pain and swelling. See doc to get it treated. Don't tamper with it yourself. ...Read more

I have tons of defined circular, raised red bumps on both legs, between my knees & ankles. They often itch. No new soaps, not razor burn. Advice?

Eczema vs. Psoriasis: Raised defined circular red bumps on skin could be a form of psoriasis or a type of eczema. You need to see a dermatologist or podistrist for evaluation and treatment. Your doctor may perform bloodwork on you to see if you have any signs of auto-immune disease and/or they may prescribe oral and/or topical medications to help resolve this skin issue. ...Read more

My 2 year old has blister like pimples on his knees and elbows.  He says they don't itch or hurt , he was taking augmentin for an URI ?

Did they appear since he was on the medication or before? Could be a viral rash. Does not sound like a typical allergy rash from medication..Make an appointment with your physician for the best answer. ...Read more
