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

My son has little  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.  Just keep spreading.  It doesn't seem to bother him and it doesn't itch but it concerns me.  I have washed his sheets and clothes over again in sensitive skin.  He has had this for a total of a week and 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.
