White headed pimples around anus/on inner walls of bum

Hi,

My 4 year old has numerous (20-30) small white headed pimples on the inside walls of his bum cheeks.  It started of as an extremely red rash and then all these white heads broke out.
We brought him to our GP and they (2 doctors) have no idea what it is.
He is not in any pain even when you wipe the area after he has gone to the toilet.
It looks horrendous and very sore but he never complains and it's been there now for 4-5 days
We have done our own research but have found nothing that matches these symptoms.
Any ideas?

Hi,
How are you? As mentioned from your other post, the skin lesions could be due to an infection, irritation, allergic reaction as well as skin issues. These warrant direct clinical examination by your doctor for proper diagnosis. A referral to a specialist may be indicated. Irritation or allergic reaction usually resolves with removal of the triggers. Skin test or blood tests may also help determine the underlying issue. Take care and do keep us posted.
