Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Since both your sons are affected with the same kind of red spots on the hairline simultaneously, it is more likely to be due to a common infection, a bug infestation or allergy to a common irritant or shampoo they used.

Such kind of spots do need a physical examination for proper diagnosis. Consulting a dermatologist will help in proper treatment.

Till then avoid applying any ointments or lotions on the affected area and do not scrub the rashes.

I hope this answers your query effectively.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
