My son has had a raised, extremely itchy red rash , that began on his thigh and back of his hands that has moved up onto his torso and now is on his arms. the dots are very round and various sizes, some almost as big as a pencil eraser. There is clear area between the spots. He has had them for about a month and they are spreading.

Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query on HealthCareMagic.

I presume that the rashes disappear at times and reappear. By your description the rash appears to be urticaria which is usually an allergic phenomenon. I suggest that you consult the pediatrician who may get him investigated and treat him accordinly. In the interim you can give him some anti-allergic medication like cetrizine and observe.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

With best wishes.
