For a few months now my 15 month old son has gotten these bumps around his genital area. They do not look like diaper rash. Started out as pimple looking and now they look like they are underneath the skin. I am concerned because he acts like he doesn't feel well however, the rash itself doesn't seem to bother him. He hasn't been eating well for a couple of months and the rash is spreading up to his stomach and back. His doctor says it may be a viral infection or a staph infection. Has anyone else experienced this with their child? Is it serious? I am using antifungal cream in case it's fungal and he is also on antibiotics.Answer Question

I know about a year ago my son had balanitis. It caused his penis to become inflamed and swollen. It looked like an ant bite. His fever was so high that we had to take him to ER. Treatment was antibiotics. You may want to get a 2nd opinion. especially if it has been going on for that long and is now spreading. Good Luck!
