7 year old with reddish spots on the feet and legs. Prescribed with peratine. What is causing this?
hi my 7 yr old daughter has a small patch of light red/light purple spots on her foot and a few reddish spots on her legs and one or two on her arms and one or two on her body. but mostly legs and 1 foot. the gp has prescribe peratine on fri but there is no itch and never was an itch. she has this about 2-3wks. ive very worried. have you any ideas of what it could be.
Those patches may be some allergic papules or some times petechial rash. How are their margins? Are they elevated or flat? Any bruising is there? Consult your Pediatrician to exactly find out the reason for this rash and for the treatment.
