Hello and welcome to HCM,
Abdominal pain in 10 year old child spots on the abdomen could be rashes on the abdomen.
Is the abdominal pain accompanied by fever?
If yes then this could be due to viral infection.
Viral infections are rare without fever and abdominal pain due to any disease process of the abdominal viscera will not cause spots on the abdominal wall.
It is advisable to consult a pediatrician for clinical examination of the child.
There may be other evidences of infection which you have not noticed.
Besides see for the bowel habits of the child also.

Thanks and take care
