Tot having blister like spots on forehead, recurred on scratching, have spread to bottom of eyes and eyelids. What could it be?

my 3yr-old son began having blister-like spots on his forehead . As he would scratch the scabs off, new ones would grow and they became bigger and spread on eyebrows and I am now noticing on the bottom of his eyes and eyelids there is some sort of rash but just red spots, not blisters. and I am noticing this same slight rash on his back. What could this be?

After reading your history it appears that your might have developed Impetigo over forehead area which is the bacterial infection of the skin. I advise you to take care that your son is not pinching or scartching the area. You can apply an antibiotic cream such as gentamycin cream. Antibiotic tablets are must such as Azithromycin under medical advise. If itching is present then can take benadryl accordingly. Consult a dermatologist to look for the exact situation and treatment of the problem.
