5 year old with pain and redness in the finger tips. Reason?

My five year old son has red on his fingers from index to his little pinky, it s all red where the finger prints area are. The first time he told me about it was 3 months about his fingers they were hurting him after a day at the water park in Dubai, the pain went a away in a few days. 3 months on I noticed his fingers tips are still red, he said it doesn t hurt, looking at them they look sore but he says they don t hurt at all. We live in Australia.

Thank you for your query.

The most common reason for soreness and pain in the finger tips has been excluded by your mention that you stay in Australia where it is warm these days. Hence it cannot be chill blains. I suggest that you get your son examined by a doctor to know what is the exact problem. Without seeing the redness it is difficult to make a suggestion. In all probability the redness should settle down.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
