bumps under armpit Spoonful of Jayson 17 kids; Morrisville, Pennsylvania 11627 posts
6th Oct '11

My son has had tiny bumps on his right armpit for a few days. I thought they would just go away, but they're not. They're bothering him but I can't tell if it hurts or if it's itchy.

We haven't changed soaps or detergents or anything and it's only on one, nowhere else on his body. If it's been a few days do I call the dr? Anyone's child have something similar?

Are they under the skin?



If so does he have a runny nose, or any sort of viral thing going on?

Really, you think it could be that? I'm going to google pics of toddler shingles.

No, they are just tiny with little white heads on them. No signs of anything else going on. We've all got allergies right now, but he's got the least of it and pretty much gone now.

Yes! I looked at a pic of a little girl with it and thankfully it doesn't look like that.

but yea if it has white heads on them then perhaps it could be a heat rash of some kind? i would take him in to get it looked at. there are many things that it could be.

So, could it be acne? Does it look like that? Either way, wouldn't hurt to get him checked out.

Do you have any long term effects from it? (shingles)

I don't think so. It's only in one spot and it's hurting him. He keeps telling me it's a booboo and wants me to kiss it.
