Rash on lower waist,small boils,red bumps,impetigo.

My 9 yr old daughter has a bruise like rash on her hip/ waist area there were also 3 (what looked to be) small boils which had popped and just become red bumps which are scaring....she also has small pink bumps on her face and trunk. She had impetigo about 2 yrs this the same thing?? I am very worried. They do not itch or cause her any pain and only one area looks like a bruise...almost like the skin is very dry there as well. No fever, vomiting, nausea, or pain of any kind.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

A physical examination would only help in identifying the cause or arriving at a diagnosis.

Please consult your doctor for the same. Certain blood tests like platelet count and swab from the lesion for culture may be required.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
