Bumps on left shin for a child

my 20 month old son has little ball looking bumps on his left shin. Sometimes it s red and sometimes it s not. The balls are really tiny and if you touch it, you can see that they are a total of 4 or 5 little balls gather making it a penny size. Should I be concerned and have his doctor perform an utrasound?

Hi,

It may be bacterial infection called impetigo. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to apply antibiotic cream like fucidine cream on the lesions. Give him bath in dettol mixed water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
