Skin Care and Diseases

Swimming pool



My grandson went swimming in his sisters pool and now has tiny red spots on his forhead. What is good to put on it to get rid of it. Thanks.


I am not certain what the red spots on your grandson's forehead represent.  Diving or holding one's breath under water occasionally will result in children getting a few petechial lesions.  Since I do not know precisely what the lesions are, I hate to make any recommendation.  I would urge you to see your primary care physician or pediatrician or dermatologist for a precise diagnosis.

Thank you for your inquiry.
