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

2 year old has a white pimple on jaw under tongue. Has cold/cough now and has been scratching around his neck and back of legs. What is this pimple?
MD and DDS: First have your child seen by your pediatrician or family physician, who can evaluate the entire situation. If your physician feels that he\she should also be seen by a pedodontist (pediatric dentist), that would be a good idea also.
