Good day Doc,

My son has three pimple like moles next to his eyes. i first thot it was pimples but they dont go away. they are sometimes redish and looks like they sore. this doesnt make him sick what so ever but its not appealing on his tiny cute little face. is there a cream or procedure to remove them? please advise?

Many thanks

First we need to know exactly what is causing these moles. Are they indeed moles or are they small warts or a skin condition called molluscum? You need to know the cause. Please take your son to see a dermatologist so that a proper diagnosis can be made.
