Q: My son has little tiny red bumps and skin colored bumps on chest, stomach, back and neck.

My son has tiny red bumps and some skin colored bumps all over his chest, stomach, back and neck.  The skin colored ones are on his face.  I have tried allergy medicines, but they have not gone away.  They just keep spreading.  It doesn't seem to bother him and doesn't itch, but it concerns me.  I have washed his sheets and clothes over and over again in sensitive skin detergent.  He has had this for a total of a week, so I thought it might be viral, but no one else in our family has this.  He is six years old.  Do you have any help?

Hi. I'm sorry to say I dont have an answer. I saw your post because my SIX year old boy has the SAME thing! His torso, butt, and legs are filled with these tiny bumps. They don't itch either, but are distressing to see!! I hope someone can help us! thank you.

My two sons, ages 8 and 11, both have the same thing you two are describing. They have skin-colored tiny little bumps all over their stomachs, backs, faces, arms, and legs that do not itch and have no other accompanying symptoms. I am getting worried about them because they have had them for three days now, but I can't really afford to take them to the doctor! Would love to know what they have.

Motherof two,


I know it has been a while, but did you ever find out the cause for your son's condition?  I also see that there are others who have noticed similar conditions in their own children.  What types of allergy medications did you try?


I am not a doctor and can't diagnose him for you, but I know that red bumps, especially in children, can be very alarming.  While they are possibly an allergic reaction, they may be related to other, more serious illnesses.  I would recommend that if they persist in children that you take them to the doctor as soon as possible.


If you did find something that worked or consulted a physician, would you be willing to return to the community and let us know what you've learned?  I'm sure it would help out some other parents as well!


Best of luck,
