Red, circular, raised bumps on leg

My 18 month old son developed 8 red circular bumps on his legs today, they were not there this morning. they are slightly raised off of the skin . he has no other symptoms except for crying somewhat more today than usual. but I had attributed that to him being in daycare today for the 1st time in almost 2 weeks. Thanks.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I think your kid is having skin allergy.
Try and identify the allergen if possible.
It could be a new soap you introduced or a new oil....
Identification of the allergen is difficult in most of the cases.
Your doctor will prescribe antihistaminics after confirmation of the diagnosis.

Be watchful of any respiratory difficulty that may develop.
Hope this helps
Take care.
