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
