My 4 y/o has some sort of pimple on his leg. He says it hurts. I will take a picture in a moment to show you. Not sure what it is. Any experience with this?

Ouch!  That looks painful!  I would just keep an eye on it, if it doesn't get better in a few days, or if it gets worse, I'd have him seen.  My sister gets staph, so I'm paranoid about stuff like that.

It might be a boil/stash infection.

Ouch!  That does look painful :(  I am not sure what that is though.  If it doesn't get better, I would call his doctor.

does he sleep with his legs tucked up close? I know that I used to get pimples that hurt real bad around that area, because I would sleep with my legs tucked up, under too many blankets lol.. either way, keep an eye on it.

 I dont know, it could be a pimple, or a boil. (is it hard?)

I would put a drop of tea tree oil on it and see what happens.

I don't think it's a bite. It looks like a pimple, really. I'll have to just keep an eye on it. He says it hurts.
