Brief Answer: Please provide the photo of the splotches... Detailed Answer: Hi, The red splotches on stomach and back and red face could be related to fungal infection of the skin (tinea) or eczema. However, I need a photo of the affected sites of your child to get into a final conclusion. Looking forward for the photos of the splotches of your child. Thank you! Dr.Sonila
