Hello Elizabeth;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If your child has a red welt or a patch which is raised it can be a sort of skin infection and to differentiate it you need to consult his doctor.It can be just a plain rash due to inflammation or a skin infection like ringworm;or any bacterial or fungal infection.Please consult the doctor and get treated.
