My 10 year old son has 2 small white dots, 1 on left chest and 1 on left shoulder. Very slightly bumpy. Asian with brown skin tone. I noticed it after long swimming day. Please can someone advice.

Thank you
Concerned Mom.

Dear An,

If these are indeed so transient after swimming, perhaps we can attribute it to irritation or even a hive like response.

If these lesions last longer than 24 hours, you should call your pediatrician. Some infections such as the virus molluscum (which causes skin colored to pink- white lesions) can be transmitted in swimming pool water.

I hope that helps
