Q.

Pimples on scalp

My 17month old has developed little pimples on his scalp. Theres only about three or four but it seems to be very irritating to him and he also scratches it until his scalp bleeds. He does have a mild case of eczema which I am treating with advanten ointment and some alergy syrip the doctor prescribed. Could the pimples be as a result of the eczema and if so what can I put on it to make it go away

Paediatrician

These pimples sound like they are a viral skin condition called molluscum. Please ask your paediatrician to see him.
