Child is recovering from cold, has developed pimples around mouth and nose with yellow head. What could this be?

I have a 4 year old son, he is just getting over a cold (runny nose , cough ) and he is getting better, but has now developed what look like pimples around his mouth and nose. They are mostly red, but some have a whitish/yellow head to them. I have only washed them with soap and water and tried to keep them dry. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Thanks for your query.
As you said your child had cold,pustules develop after constant irritation of area after rubbing.
Wash it with mild face wash and apply topical antibacterial like mupirocin 2 to 3 times a day for 4 to 5 days.
If it persist get him examined by pediatrician.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
