My 5 month old son has pimples around his mouth, buttocks, under his feet and hands. Is this a sign of hand, foot and mouth disease?

Hand, foot and mouth: Hand foot and mouth disease usually presents with Papular or pustular rash on the lips, palm of hands and sole of feet. There may also be a fever. What is most important is that the same rash usually occurs inside the mouth and back of throat. This prevents adequate intake of fluids which may result in dehydration. If your child is not feeding well, see the Pediatrician. ...Read more

Core Exercises: Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine. I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance. Ice recommended for 1st 48 hrs, then ice or heat is fine. ...Read more

I have 6 straight line bug bites on my left leg. I'm not sure what kind of bug is that. It looks a pimple and too painful when I touch it.?

Bed bugs: Bed bugs strike in linear streaks and cause a lot of itching. It is usually not painful. Spider bites could cause more pain but usually they don't cause that many bites in a row. I'm betting on bed bugs and recommend you check you bed for small black insects. You may see blood marks on your sheets too where the bugs were squashed as you slept. If anyone shared your bed they may have it too. ...Read more

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.

Also consider Lipoma: If it is red, sore, and increasing in size over time- Dr Yetimyan is absolutely right. A boil or abscess will generally worsen until it is drained. If it has no color change, and is not painful, it could be a lipoma. Purple bluish lumps can be lymphangiomas. These last two are not concerning. There are a few other things to consider, but it would depend on it's characteristics. ...Read more

Cyst or abscess: This sounds like an inflamed cyst or an abscess. A cyst is a plugged hair follicle that gets filled with keratin (dead skin) debris. This can enlarge and become inflamed/infected. An abscess is a collection of pus, usually from an infection. They commonly occur in areas of friction (like the groin). I recommend evaluation by a dermatologist in case you require drainage or antibiotics. ...Read more
