Thank you for your query.

It is not unusual for children to have bouts of stomach upset and upper respiratory infection. This seems to have happened with your son and he has recovered from them. Viral infections do cause transient rash which you may noticed as ring shaped patch. Being transient the rash must have disappeared.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
