Welcome to XXXXXXX

I have seen photo.

Reddish brown spot on the cheek of your son can be due to psoriasis, eczema, bleeding under skin etc.

As treatment is not possible at your level, please consult a Dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.

If you have further query, please feel free to ask.
