Question: Pimple on 3 yrs olds nose

 Archiebald - Mon Jan 01, 2007 6:54 pm

My son started with a blackhead on his nose, I left it alone and it turned into a pimpe about a month ago, it has not gone away, i was able to squeeze it a little and got some yellow fluid out but it still has not gotten any better, any suggestions of what I can do, its been there way too long

User avatar I would suggest having your child evaluated by his doctor. An in person examination will be very helpful. There are a few possibilites. Occasionally, small cysts called inclusion cysts can form and can be ongoing. Also, it may be that the pore continues to be blocked, not allowing the fluid to drain well and leading to reaccumulation.

Hope this helps.
