In brief: Rash
All rashes are best assessed in person with your doctor. Rashes are usually a visual diagnosis.
Your child's rash could be anything from a viral wart called molluscum contagiosum to scarlett fever to a viral rash. Thus is why you need to see your doctor.

In brief: Yes.
From your description, there are a few possible causes, including skin cysts, molluscum contagiosum, and folliculitis.
Some causes require treatment and some don't;your son's doctor can tell you the diagnosis and what treatment is needed, if any.
