RED PIIMPLE/SORE-LIKE ON BABY PVT PARTS

RED PIIMPLE/SORE-LIKE ON BABY PVT PARTS - My son who is 9 months old has developed a red small pimple-like/sore on his testicles.

What causes this, could it be a sign of sexual molestation, he stays with the nanny. Im worried. Last nite we took him to the pharmacy and the phamarcist said its nothing to worry about. These days you hear all sorts of shocking stories about child abuse and I dont want to act ignorant. Please advise

Paediatrician

This sounds like a form of nappy rash. Use a good nappy cream and see if the rash clears. If it does not take him to see a paediatrician.
