My son woke up this morning with something that looks like a small pimple on his face. Hes 19 months old. What could it be? Should I call the doctor?

If it truly looks like I pimple I say it could be one. My son was so sensitive to every thing that would touch his face. Around 1 years old was when his breakouts got worse cause the foods he would eat would irritate his face. We learned of a few allergies that way. I would keep an eye on it and if it gets worse then take him in, but it's probably just a pimple. Where is it at?

On his cheek,kinda by his eye. I just didn't know a little one could get a pimple. Its only the one though so its obviously not a rash-I was just thrown off lol.

 I also wanted to mention something I forgot. I remember my sons pedi telling me that around 12-18 months babies start developing sweat glands. So, pimples and other skin issues will start presenting themselves around that time. I wouldn't worry much yet, just keep an eye on it though.

 I have no clue how he could have gotten chicken pox!! Its still only the one though-its been all day,so im assuming its not that.

If it makes a difference he has a slight fever,runny nose and is teething so IDK.

My 18 month old had something like that on his cheek, I was sure it was a pimple because it looked like it had a head and there was only one. I didn't call the doctor because he was due for his 18 month check up anyways and it ended up not being a pimple. I can't spell what it was but she had to prescribe a cream I had to put on it so that it would not get infected or spread at all. Its gone now though. Can you post a pic?? I could then see if it looks like my son's did.
