Thank you for your question.

Do you have a picture or two that you could attach on here for me to have a look at.

Thank you

Here are two pictures and the one that is now red was already treated with liquid nitrogen and I feel like it spread since then since there was only 2 at the time
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 5 months ago.

The one that is red seems to be infected a little.

Applying OTC topical antibiotics like polysporin or neosporin in combination with 1% hydrocortisone will help improve the one that is red.

The other one also seems like a skin tag.

Again, this is not something to worry about.

If it is not bothering him I would not bother it.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

but there are now like 7 of them so although they don't bother him I'm concerned as to why they are spreading
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No disrespect as I appreciate your input but I already had his pediatrician look at and therefore I got on here for a dermatologist opinion. Is this a form of a wart? Can this question be transferred to a dermatologist?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 5 months ago.

Actually this question was posted in the pediatrics category which is why it was transferred here.

I will opt out and try to transfer this question to a dermatologist but this will take a few hours so you may have to wait.

That's fine I did select dermatologist but maybe only pediatric stuck. Thanks again for your assistance

Most welcome.
