In brief: Infection

The infections of your child,s butt and stye may be due to staph infections.
Apply hot compresses to both. When the boil on the butt comes to a head, see your doctor so he can lance the boil, take a culture and start you on medication. The stye, likewise, will come to a head and drain.careful hand washing is the order of the day to prevent further spread of infection
