My six month old has a pimple on his chin. Is this normal? It had a little white head and when it came off there was some pus. It is definitely swollen and I was wondering if it could be staff.

Hi! I'm the board moderator for this community.

Here's a slide show about baby skin that might answer your questions. http://children.webmd.com/slideshow-baby-skin-care

The last slide reads: Most baby skin rashes and problems aren't serious, but a few may be signs of infection — and need close attention. If baby's skin has small, red-purplish dots, if there are yellow fluid-filled bumps (pustules), or if baby has a fever or lethargy, call your pediatrician for medical treatment right away.

So please do consult your doctor if you see any of the above signs.
