my 3 1/2 yr old has had an itchy spot on his back for most of the day, now he is screaming at me to scratch it, when i looked he has these clusters of little red spots there would be aout 50 or so to about 10cm diameter of skin, they r just on his back tummy, a little down his legs, he also had what we thought was conjuntivitis(sorry about spelling) but that cleared up in 2 days, he is very irratable when sleeping, he doesnt have a temp that i have noticed, his face is a bit flushed but i put that down to screaming at me to scratch his back. please help i have no idea

if he ever has this again, I would take him to the doctor immediately. Maybe the ER, even. That might be an adverse reaction to something, and they are possibly able to know what it is with some tests (maybe food, detergent, polen, pets...). Poor thing! Good luck.

Well first i would take him to the doctor and get it checked out because it could possibly be aunts or it could be spiders etc. i would certainly get it checked out!

hope this helped!
