Raised red bumps, itchy on legs after eating cucumber from a ziploc bag. Suggestions?

Hi. My 4 year old just started to get all of these raised red bumps (circular but not symmetrically) on his ankles and feet , behind his knee caps, a couple on his butt and one on his shoulder . At first, I thought they were mosquito bites, but I feel like every time I look, he gets another one. They are itchy. The only thing he has eaten in the past hour has been some cucumber slices that I had in a ziplock bag.

Thanks for the query,

Probably he has developed an allergic reaction called as urticaria.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also give him an antihistamine tablet like cetrizine.

This will give you him some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
