Q.

pimple on face

Hi, i have a 6yr old son who has a tiny pimple on his face that has a bit of water in it, like a bubble, but it seems to be getting bigger and spreading more over skin. what can it be? he didnt get burned, or anything. it has been on his face for the past few weeks now.

This could be due to an infection with a bacteria called Staph. Please ask your doctor to see your son.
