Doctor: Thank you for your question. This red spot on your son’s nose seems to be a comedone (pimple). Usually these resol e without complication in a few days but sometimes they can be more persistent. Topical corticosteroid cream can assist in treating this effectively. Please have your doctor examine this area to determine if this prescription will help treat this lesion on your son’s nose.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
