breakout in red bumbs on arms and legs only

My 1 year old son has broken out in red rash type bumps all over his arms and legs only. He has had them for about a week. They were starting to disappear but started coming back worse than before. He does not have a fever and acts like his normal playful self. Im just concerned about the bumps. what could it be?

Hi,

It would be very difficult to say anything without having a look at the lesions.

Is he on any medications currently? This could be due to an allergic reaction to some unknown substance or secondary to insect bite or sweat dermatitis etc. But nothing can be said with surety without a clinical examination.

You should wash the areas and keep them clean, apply calamine lotion at the site for his symptoms.

It would be best to consult a skin specialist or pediatrician if the rash does not resolve in a few days. You should get the relevant investigations as advised by the doctor including blood work.

Let us know about what the doctor advises and if you have any other doubts.

Post us about how he is doing.

Regards.
