Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
How old is your son? Have you looked for rashes which are seen in measles, and chicken pox. I suggest you get him examined by a skin doctor who can see and decide the type of spots, and how to treat them.If they are very itchy, I suggest application of calamine lotion on the spots and antiallergic medication.Thanks.
