Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query,
your son is having pustular eruptions,
clean the area and apply mupirocin ointment over the pustules. 3 times a not rub or squeeze them.
I advise you to take him to pediatrician,as he needs antibiotic course for the same.

Wishing your son good health.
God bless.
