What causes allergic body lumps with non itching rashes?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... My son has red and white bumps on his legs, thighs, buttocks, right side of his stiomach, armsm, and is beginning to develop it on his cheeks. His pediatrician said that it s food allergy and gave him benadryl. His homeopathic doctor said that it looks like a heat rash and gave him a Calendula non-greasy lotion, and drops with chamomile and calcium. It s not getting any better thoughm so I did research online and found out about gGianotti-Crosti syndrome. The pictures look like my son s rash and the description fits it perfectly. The rash is non-itchy. Please help. What do I do? The rash is scarying me!

Hi,

Gianotti Crosti syndrome usually follows a viral infection like mononucleosis or hepatitis. A spontaneous rash can not be attributed to this. Show to a dermatologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
