Yes, kiddos can get little pimples like that.  Hard to believe, right? Baby acne is real.  Here is an article on it. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/baby-acne/symptoms-causes/syc-20369880  Has this happened more?  I do know of a situation in which a child had difficulty with dairy digestion and this was a sign of it.  So, if it continues, talk to your little one's doctor!
