A few months ago I noticed what at first looked like several small pimples on my 12 year old son's upper lip. These "pimples" were in the area where nostril meets upper lip. I got him some acne cream but it did not do any good. We tried hydrocortizone next as I was starting to think this was not acne. It honestly did not help much. The bumps seem to go away for a while but then come back. He does not seem to have a problem with itching. The skin is also red. Anyone have any ideas? I considered impetago but I thought the was more like scabs.
