Child has tiny pimples on face, diet was modified, used SPF, sunscreen

From UK, live in Singapore, just returned from one hot, sunny week in Thailand. Son, 9 years old has returned with face covered in small, raised spots like tiny pimples, predominantly on forehead, nose and either side of, and on his chin. We had a 'free' week with food during which he ate enormous breakfasts, especially fatty bacon, fried bread and pastries for breakfast and fizzy drinks and milkshakes later in the day. We used SPF 30 and 50 reapplying every hour and spent most of the time in the pool or sea. He showered every evening and used after sun cream and insect repellent. I thought the previous two reasons were the cause. He has no spots anywhere else; they are not sore, dry, weeping, puss-filled or itchy. We have been home for four days now and there is no change.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The wise course will be to see a dermatologist!
Food, if responsible should cause generalised response / and some stomach upset...
Simple rash should have gone by four days...
That it is restricted to a certain exposed area favours a local phenomenon - probably, the sun screen was not enough...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
