  • it's not normal per se, but don't worry. it's probably just a spot of diaper rash or an ingrown hair or something from his diaper. is he young? you sound like me when i first had my baby. i was paranoid about everything and anything that i saw on him. i'm sure that it is absolutely nothing. just keep an eye on it. it could even be a little bug bite or something. good luck!

  • My 11 day old son had one a couple days ago right above his penis, it was like a whitehead pimple. The doctor gave me an antibiotic ointment to put on it twice a day and it went right away. Maybe you should get it looked at just in case.
