Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what your son has. It is important to see this rash in order to make the right diagnosis and make helpful recommendations. For this, I will suggest that you upload an image for review. However, the acute nature of this rash is suggestive of a possible allergy but that needs confirmation and images will help in this light.

To upload an image, click on the upload icon to the right of your dashboard and follow the onscreen instructions. You may also send it directly to customer service at YYYY@YYYY and request that it should be uploaded to your query.

I hope to hear from you and promise to respond promptly. Until next, I wish you well.
