Hi Doctor, My son is 15 months old. He started developing bright red spots on palms and soles since 2 days. Initially there were only 2 in total now it is around 5 or 6. He doesnt have any problem due to this till now. It doesnt seem to be itching or paining. What can be the reason for this? And what is the treatment you are recommending?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi Archna,
Thanks for writing in.
It can be purpuric spots or cherry angiomas.
It can be due to infection,blood disorder,insect bite etc.
Also it can be a number of other things.
You can apply calamine lotion over the area.
Take a lot of lemon juice daily.Also you can take vitamin C tablets daily.

Definitive diagnosis can be suggested only after visual examination.Treatment depends on the diagnosis.
I encourage you to visit a qualified dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Hope this helps.
