My son is 9 years, he sweats a lot when he plays and he plays a lot too. since 6 months he is getting small pimples under-arms. First it looks like a mosquito bite with itching, slowly it increases its size to 1 inch and becomes very painful and hard. by 3rd or forth day it bursts out and pus comes out profusely then blood. Then it goes away. It is total life cycle of 1 week to 10 days. Initially they came only in arm pit area. But now they appear on thighs and now on waist, where he does not sweat at all. The physician gives a course of anti-biotics and tells to keep him clean. That's all. I started giving him bath myself from  I saw them first. I keep him too clean. I am unable to understand whats that.

check out the diet he is eating. i think better to go for a blood test. give him diet that cools his body. barley,coconut water ...etc. Inspite of cleanliness also if the pimples are appearing, may be internal medicine would work out. i strictly suggest you to go for ayurveda for this issue. or else go through any ayurvedic remedies and prepare a bath powder.better u approach ayurvedic physician, than the child suffering from inconvinience with the pimples.

I think it could be hormonal. May be he is hitting puberty early or due to pre-pubscent changes in the body these pimples are coming up. Take him to a dermatologist and get it checked. It would most likely be hormonal IMO. Don't worry.
