  • It is likely a clogged pore. Lerave it alone. Keep an eye on it. If it developes a red ring around it it could be a spider bite. Just keep it clean and watch it. If it still there in a few days and it concerns you have her seen.

  • Do you have any animals? Fleas-I am not attacking, my cat just got them and they are in the house. I am not sure if the bump on my son are bites or just bumps.

  • Keep an eye on it, However at six months old they develop allergies. My son still getts them scattered on his back. One here one there! These are hives. It can be caused from soap or anything with purfumes. I thought my son was getting bit by a spider or something. The best thing to do is watch it for changes or if it spreads. Make sure there isn't a fever and he'll be fine. Hiss skin is being exposed to so many new things. I know its scary but tottally normal.
