I've just seen this on my sons arm. It wasn't there this morning. If anyone could help me out that would be great.

He's 14 months old almost.

no idea, but chicken pox?

It isolated to only that area. He does have eczema in that area but that's not what it looks like x

It looks like infected eczema to me. Get the gp to have a look, he might need antibiotics.

Looks like molluscum to me. My dd had it at that age. Was told she would grow out of it.she had it on and off for a yr and then it never came back. Hers was on the inside of her arm at the joints roo.

Infected eczema I would say too. Do gets it there and when it's infected like that I use Cotorpin cream. It usually clears it up.

Not molluscum, I'd say infected eczema.

It looks to me like impetigo. If it is, it's basically harmless but the gunge can grow at an alarming rate and its very infectious. Go see your GP tomorrow. If you say you think it's impetigo, they'll almost certainly see you that day. Antibiotics will get rid of it.

That looks like impetigo to me. Possibly infected. He definitely needs looking at.
