Tiny very itchy rash on 11 yr old boy

My 11 year old son, in the last 2 hours, has gotten covered by tiny little itchy bumps...started on the back of his hands and is now all over but his genital area. Hes not having any other symtoms that I know of but hes going to scratch his skin off. I did have him bathe in oatmeal. I also had him covered in caladryl. Any suggestions to what this is, and if theres anything I can give him here at home?

Hi!Crystal F,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
probably its a urticarial rash i.e. allergic rash .We also have to rule out scabies since he is a child .Kindly look if he has some lesions on his web the itching more in night..Does he have any stomach ache or any dental caries.You can de worm him by tab zentel...give his antihistaminics like cetrizine (5mg) daily..Show him to a dermatologist who can see the lesions and diagnose.
take care,
