My 14 month old has a rash that looks like little blisters on his upper left leg and the past 2 days it has grown in size and turned a deep red... any idea what this is.. it doesnt seem to bother him in any way.

Doctor visit. It could also be a severe allergic reaction, cellulitis, or a viral infection.

Get him checked out this could be anything from an infected insect bite to the onset of chicken poxs. You really need to have this looked at and fast.

my daughter had a similar rash a few months ago - the early childhood nurse (we just happened to be in for a check-up) thought it might be 'school rash' which is highly contagious apparently, but when we took her to the doctor it turned out to be eczema but with a staph infection in it (thus the 'blisters'). My daughter needed antibiotics for the staph and steroid cream for the eczema. The rash did not bother my daughter either, but you really need a doctor to look at it . . .

Take him to the doctor . . . :o)
