Bumps and rashes on legs in infant, itchiness. Help?

My son is 18mths old and has a red bumpy rash on just one leg. The rashes are in small groups on the leg. The rash groups start as a cluster of lumps then go out to a few lumps. It has been getting worse as the weeks have gone on. He hasn't had a fever or anything out of the ordinary. Just te last few days he has started to itch and he itches at lot more after his shower.

Though on first look these red blotches sound like an urticaria, it may not be so. Do get tests done for allergyand blood tests like phadia top immunocap may help.
If it were not allergy, a picture will make it clearer. A blood count to check platelets and tests to check bleeding profile may be mandatory in select cases as your treating doctor should decide. Discuss with your doctor with a print out of this.
