Red mottled rash on upper body front and back, pricky with fever. Is it allergy ?

My grandson had a red motteled rash on his upper body front and back. It is prickely but is flat so it does not look like a heat rash or anything that raises to a bump. H did run a slight fever but is fine now except the rash as not gone away. Could it be a form of heat rash or is it more likely a allergic reaction to something. He is six. Thank you I will check with his family and get back to you I may just take his to his peditrition tomorrow.

Dear Concerned .,

Thanks for writing to us.

In all probability ,

the history of prickly sensation is suggestive of subcutaneous denaturation of protiens in the lower stratum of skin and subsequent allergic reaction that ensues against denatured protein underneath producing prickly heat rashes on the exposed parts of the body.

Kindly apply soothening creams/lotions such as Lotio calamine over the affected area generously and do not allow exposure to Sun for a three to four days.

The lesions will subside.If there is fever pls take him to local doctor as it indicates infection.
