A form of dermatitis: There are a few different conditions that may cause such a presentation. This could be due to an organism.

Lump on skin: Hard to know exactly without seeing it, but possibly it's an ingrown hair, or a lipoma (small collection of fat).

If it gets worse or becomes painful, have it checked out. ...Read more

Of size, shape, color, texture, central dimple, cheesy, greasy material inside, etc. Etc. Tell parents to take your cousin to his pediatrician. Thx. For your concern for the cousin. ...Read more
