Circular red spots along 5 years old childs spine suggest me treatment.

I have a 5 year old son. This morning I discovered two circular red spots directly along his spine. Just hours later I could see the beginning of what looks like 3 more. They're not sensitive to touch, do not blanche, he hasn't fallen or had anything happen to his back, they are red only and nearly perfect circles. What in the world could these be a symptom of?

Sounds like a symptom of ringworms.

Hi,Jolene Menegas,
Thanks for query,
It seems that your son might have Tenia versicolar infection,a type of fungal infection.
It can occur overnight.
Apply anti fungal cream or antifungal powder.
Keep that part dry.
Ok and bye.
