Well my son is breaking out very litely .... He has a rash over a week now on his face only but it will NOT get worst or does not become more. Its not red or nothing just like luttle pimpels... and since he is a little bigger maybe I am thinking that these are heat rash??

  • Hi,
    My oldest daughter also has the little bump like you say your son has, she had them since she was a babe and now they seem to be going away as she is getting older. i did ask my docter and he told me that in time they would go away.
