My son is five years old and has a rash on his left bum it looks like pimples What can it be?

Bummer

Contact_dermatitis
I am very fond of telling people that the main tool that a dermatologist has to use in his or her practice is their eyeballs! That means that you should have this problem looked at by dermatologist personally. This could be anything from a fully cure this too allergic contact dermatitis! I have even seen herpes simplex my butt off and nowhere else.

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.

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.

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.

Could molluscum

These could also be allergic type reaction. Should be checked at some time when he has them to get correct diagnosis

is a hiv sore like a pimple?

No

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
HIV by itself does not cause sores. As the disease advances, it can increase incidence of other infections that may appear like this, but the presence of a pimple isn't a marker of HIV.
