What causes spots on legs of a 2 year old?

my 2yr old daughter has (SPOTS) to her legs from her thigh to ankles and to both forearms. The areas will itch sometimes. At first i thought that they were bites. She has no other symptoms i.e fever, diarrhoea, vomiting. I think this maybe viral but im not sure. Medical history: patches of discoid eczema to upper arms, dorsum of R hand, back of R knee and to inner lateral aspect of both knees. Treated with 1% hydrocortisone PRN.

Good afternoon..!!

The spots on your two year old daughter's legs and forearms could be due to chronic allergic reaction or due to chronic fungal infection.

So if persisting, it's better to visit pediatric dermatologist for further evaluation and management.

Thank you, have a nice day..!!!
