What causes red welts on face of toddler?
Could be due to some allergic reaction.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through the details provided. I would need to ask you specifically if the rashes look same as the previous bug bites. It would be helpful if you could upload an image of these 'ref welts'. You can do so using the facility on the upper right of this page. There is a possibility of these rashes being due to some allergic reaction. You can try giving him some antiallergic like cetirizine syrup one a day for a few days and see if that makes a difference.
I will wait for your response.
It could be due to allergic reaction to some insect bite.
Thanks for writing back.
I have checked the attached images. Looking at the rash on the back of the neck it seems that it could be due to allergic reaction to some insect bite. I would insist you to give the child cetirizine syrup for a few days. I would also insist you to get a blood count done. I wish to check the total leucocyte count, the eosinophil count and the platelet count. That should give an idea if other causes could be involved.
