Hi,
Welcome to HCM,

I have read your query and understand the concern about your child.

From your descriptions, her red and slightly swollen buttock cheek could be due to inflammation which can be small boil or abscess.

But provide me picture of the swelling to arrive at a certain conclusion and so that I can guide you better.

Awaiting your response.

Regards,

Dr.Sandip kabra
