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 ?

Rashes

Knee
are best evaluated by being seen...literally. Blister like pimples on elbows and knees could be molluscum conatgiosum...can't tell without seeing. You don't say how long they have been there. 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.

What can I do for pimples on the knees?

Keep clean

Acne
If it is from shaving, this is folliculitis. It is treated with good washing and using a clean razor once it has healed. you can wash the skin with rubbing alcohol several times a day to help clean it up. Some people are more prone to this. If it is not going away or worsening, see your family doc or a dermatologist to get an antibiotic to help clear the skin. get seen to get best treatment.

Dr. Jane Chung answered:

Why black pimple head is coming in elbow and knees?

Ingrown hair?

Elbow_
It may a condition called ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled around and grown back into your skin instead of rising up from it. Sometimes dead skin can clog up a hair follicle. That forces the hair inside it to grow sideways under the skin, rather than upward and outward. It may look dark because of hair inside.

Tiny itchy pimples same color as flesh in elbows and knees, they come in groups. they itch when forming then they don't. unvisible unless you searched?

Hives

Elbow
Hives tend to be red, round, raised and very itchy. Yours aren't red but they match up otherwise. I like to think of hives as the Baskin Robbins of skin conditions, they come in 31 different flavors. Try a little over the counter non-sedating oral antihistamine or topical anti-itch creams twice daily.

Grandson has pimple-like outbreak behind one knee. Hard encapsulated. They are painful at times. What could this be?

Possibly boils

Knee
Hard, painful pimples suggest a localized skin infection usually caused by the bacteria staph aureus. A possible reason it is behind the knee is that your grandson may have eczema which is often behind the knee and makes one more susceptible to staph infections.

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?

Maybe a boil

Extremity-joint-knee
Some people go through phases where they get recurrent staphylococcal infections. It may be helpful to see the doctor when it is ready to pop to get a culture. There is a prescription Bactroban that can be very helpful for such infections but you need to be seen to get it.

Abscess

Pimples
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.

Can not diagnose it without seeing it. See your dermatologist If I were to guess from your description I would think about molluscum contageosum
