Pimples On Child's Buttocks
My 8yr boy has keratosis pillaris on his arms and cheeks, is now experiencing acne on his cheeks. He is also prone to pimply rash on buttocks?
Yes: It could also be milia - tiny white bumps on newborn skin. Acne tends to develop a few weeks after birth, while milia are often present at birth. Milia are thought to be due to premature or blocked sebaceous (oil) glands. There is no need for treatment, they will disappear naturally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why does my friend get pimples (they sort of resemble cystic acne) on her mons pubis? She gets cystic acne on her face too. She isn't sexually active.
Don't ask why: Acne needs to be managed. Nobody ever realy figures out why one person gets is and another doesn't. A good anti-bacterial wash (we used to use PhisoHex) can help prevent infected hairs in the pubic area. Cystic acne is extremely serious and usually requires isotretinoin. She needs to use benzoyl peroxide and get with her physician as she'll also need prescription Rx. Thanks for asking for her ...Read more
My 2 year old black son has bumps on his skin on his chest, belly, back, diaper area, and face. They don't appear to itch or hurt. Look like goosebump?
Need more info: Is he on any meds right now or prior to rash? Any fever prior? If he isn't itchy and it doesn't bother him, i suspect it is probably viral and will resolve in 24 to 48 hrs. Just monitor him and take him in if no resolution in 3 or 4 days or if his symptoms worsen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How do I control MRSA outbreak of raised pustules in groin area and same on a 2 yr old that is on his buttocks?
18 month old male has red bumps on his inner thighs and few red bumps on buttocks. What is it. Diaper cream does not clear it up?
Infection: It could be a fungal, yeast, infection, or possibly a bacterial infection usually caused by staph or strep bacteria. Any over-the-counter antifungal cream a woman uses for vaginal yeast would work for that cause. Quicker diaper changes and gentle cleaning may help. Bacitracin or neosporin twice daily should help if it is a minor skin infection. Call the doctor if not better in 4-5 days. ...Read more
Any advice about how to treat acne? Whiteheads on checks? Blackheads on nose? Pimples on chin, forehead, and around the eyes? Advice?
Some options...: For treatment of acne, over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide gel/cream is quite helpful. If desired, a doctor can add an antibiotic gel/cream such as Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) gel. If more help is needed, prescription retinoids such as Retin-A or Differin gel can be used instead of benzoyl peroxide. Oral antibiotics such as tetracycline can be used also. If acne is quite severe, a dermatologist might use oral ccutane. ...Read more
My 15 month old has red blister like bumps on her butt some on her inner thigh and now showing up on her stomach and hands which she's scrathing them?
No: Newborns have several types of normal rashes. Erythema toxicum is a rash that looks like flea bites and moves around the body. Nothing needs to be done. Little white milk bumps or milia are like whiteheads and fade with time as you wash the skin.. Baby acne looks like little pimples and can be on the face and chest. A warm washcloth to clean is all that is needed. It improves with time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tryptophan: If protein is not digested body does not get enough tryptophan - precursor for both serotonin and melanin. Could be a sign of indigestion. Get tested with metametrix lab - urine organix profile - this can pinpoint the problem. Use aminosport by biotics or neuro-htp by biotics to improve this issue. ...Read more
2 year old son has red hot bumps on palms, bumps on arms, ankles & a couple on his side, flea bites? Hfm disease? Chicken pox? How to tell difference?
Shouldnt: Probably has no effect. The best treatment for blackheads is long term use of prescription tretinoin or adapalene. If you can only use over the counter products and cannot go see a doctor, you will benefit from over the counter products with salicylic acid. A procedure called dermasweep has given my patients good results, too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It starts as a burning or pain in the finger followed by redness and swelling and then fluid filled blisters. 60% are due to HSV 1 and 40% due to HSV 2. Can catch it from touching a herpes sore on another person or on oneself. For patient information and pictures see: http://bit.ly/1xNa2X5 ...Read more
Hi, my daughter (who is 11) has small skin-coloured bumps on her areola, is it normal that there are bumps on her areola?
My baby has a rash on his face. I think it might be eczema because his face is dry. Can i put vaseline on his face?
Go to a doctor: Baby's skin is very delicate and it is not good to treat it with things that are fine for older children and adults. A facial rash may not be serious, but it may be part of an allergic reaction or something else requiring a prescription. Make an appointment or visit an urgent care clinic to avoid problems. Vaseline does not sound good, but ask a druggist for a baby product that won't hurt. ...Read more
