Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
From what you describe they seem like they are pustules i.e collection of pus.
Causes can be many - precautions to be taken are 1)Keep that area dry 2) Remove the diapers immediately after they get soiled. 3) Clean with mild pressure dont apply too much pressure as baby's skin is too fragile.
Consult a pediatrician and get treatment with an antibiotic.

Hi, my two year old daughter always has one pimple with a white tip somewhere on her body at all times. Once the pimple pops and starts to heal another one shows up somewhere else on her body. She has had them on her face, legs, chest, and butt. This has been going on for about 7 months. There is no other rash or any other symptoms. Any idea what this could be from. Thanks, RC

Hi, My 3 year old has had a pimple like growth on his buttocks (by his anus) for over a month now. It is only one, on a small scar he has since he was weeks old (the area was once drained after a cyst there was found- they were unable to culture it). The tiny bump does not seem to be fluid filled or hard. It is not red or painful. At first I thought it was a cyst, I thought I saw a tiny black dot on it but it may be my imagination. It appears to have gotten a tiny bit bigger. Should I be worried about a bump that has not gone away?

Hi, I have a 10 month old son who I bathe every day. Yesterday I noticed a worm like pimple on his penis, right under the folds of his skin where he was circumsized. It wasnt red or swollen but it looked like a grain of rice was under his skin. I gently squeezed it and a white cheezy substance came out from both ends. The substance was similar to that from a pimple. The lump remained there but would no longer drain. It wasnt painful for him when I drained it either. Im not sure what is causing it. Can it be baby powder, type of soap? The lump is still there and seems to be slowly filling back up again. thanks
