Hi,

Thanks for posting your query to XXXXXXX

From the points you mentioned your son is likely to suffering from Upper Respiratory tract infection mostly of viral nature because strep has been ruled out.

Would like to know a few things:

Is your son on any medication ?
Is your son having diarrhoea?
Is urination getting difficult,any burning?
Has the rash occurred suddenly?
Has it increased in size or spread to other areas?
Does it look like hives ?
Is defecation difficult?

Kindly get back with the answers so that I could guide you.
Bye
Take care.
