Thank you for your query.

The problem that you describe is not autism. However with the high pain threshold your son must be hurting himself which is giving rise to the reactionary conditions. I suggest that you show the bumps to your doctor who will examine them and guide you accordingly.

In case your son has autism then the doctor shall give you a proper guidance or arrange for further evaluation.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
