Child developed red spots around rug burn on the stomach, thighs. No itching, fever. What could it be?

My 2.5 year old son showed his stomach on Thanksgiving and it appeared to look like a rug burn from sliding down the stairs. It was red, swollen and looked like a rug burn (my older son has had one before). Four days after Thanksgiving he started to develop red spots with the tiniest little white head near the rug burn. One day later he has maybe 10 more spots and a few on his thighs. No itching or fever , he is in good spirits.????
