Hi there
Small pimples on scalp often called as a form of seborrheic dermatitis may need specific selenium based shampoos or steroid creams.
If infected like in this case , the infant may need antibiotic syrup. Please get the pus tested for smear culture test.
I hope this answers your query . Please ask any further doubts.
