just to add he is teething.. has been pulling and rubbing ears badly. drooling a lot
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 11 months ago.
Thanks for the pictures.These lesions are known as Milia.They are formed due to the accumulation of the keratin in the sweat glands.Hot climate is a common reason.Cooling environment, moisturizeation with Aveeno will help.They often resolve on their own over time.Do not worry.

this is his forehead. the skin on cheeks near ear has become rough and flaky as he rubs it a lot. is this also milia? and approx how many days this starts healing?
thanks a lot for this information doctor.
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 11 months ago.
Yes this is also milia.Rubbing can give red appearance.Nothing to worry about.May take 3-4 months sometimes even longer.Gradually clears up.Best wishes
