small bumps/boils on baby's arm

Hi,

My 18 month old baby girl is having small boils or bumps on her upper arms (near biceps area)

The doctor told me it will go away but it hasn't and it has only become worse.

Is there any cream/lotion you can suggest?

Thank you.

My daughter has a few of them, I've been soaking her in a peroxide (in her bath water) and let air get to it, boils seem to like moist places. be sure to keep it dry. or a hot compress (but not too hot) since she is a small child. it will most likely pop and you can drain it. I'm sure it will make her feel better. Just be sure to keep it clean.
