Child having line of itchy, red bumps stretching from shoulder to diaper area, no fever, has been given all vaccinations, had eczema. What could this be?

My 3 year old has had eczema most of her life. It is flared now. I ve been applying momatesone to the patches . However on her back there s a 6 inch line of bumps now that stretch from her right shoulder blade to her diaper line. There s 6 of the bumps. They look red and raised with a lighter top almost like a pimple. She scratches at them so m sure they itch. She s had all of her vaccinations including chicken pox . No fever as of now. The bumps appeared yesterday all at once. Any idea what they might be?

As you mention that your child has history of eczema and you apply momatesone, I suggest that you get the child examined by the doctor to know the fresh problem that has appeared. Without seeing the bumps it is not advisable to suggest what it could be.

Wishing your child an early recovery.
