My son has had a red spot under his eye for at least a year.

Customer Question
It seemed like it "burst"...
My son has had a red spot under his eye for at least a year. It seemed like it "burst" at one point but after he scrubbed off what looked like dried blood, it seemed even worse. Yesterday he had red cheeks and when he woke up he had red dots around his mouth. He is 12.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he says the larger spot hurts a bit when he opens his mouth wide.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago

Thank you for the input & the pictures.

The initial red spot can get inflamed or infected from scratching.

Infection can spread to other part of the face.

Motrin can be given if the pain is much.

You can apply neosporin cream.

If the spots continues to increase in size, number, pain, I would advise to get an examination by doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you. I don't think I was clear though. These two events happened over a month apart. He just had the one under his eye for ages and now he has the one by his mouth and small ones by his lips months after that first one seemed to burst.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago

Which one is tender?

Did you get these checked by doctor in this period?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
First one never bothered him at all besides the appearance. I just assumed it was an odd birthmark. The others just appeared yesterday.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago

When did the spot under the eye burst open?

When did he scrub it?

Ask Your Own Pediatrics Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The one under his mouth hurts a bit when he opens his mouth. The spot "burst" about 2 months ago. It looked as if little capillaries were spreading out from it but when he scrubbed it, it seemed to disappear, only to start appearing more red later.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago

I was not aware it burst 2 months back.

Then the two may not be related.

The upper one can be freckle, vascular malformation.

The new one is likely from an inflammation or infection.

My 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today.
my 1 year old woke up with a sudden fever of 102 today. We've given her Tylenol and it's gone down to 100.5 (now back up to 101.2 before bed). What worries me is that this afternoon and this evening she has started having involuntary tics - squeeze her eyes shut for a second or two. This is not blinking, it is very clearly a facial spasm or tic. She has also had a few jerky movements (somewhat like startle reflex when she was a newborn). I'm really afraid that these are febrile seizures … read more
