My son has mild seasonal allergies and in the last couple years has developed itchy spots on his arms and legs that open into sores. He picks them because they itch alot and now he is very scarred. It only happens in the summer (I thought it was from chlorine, but he hasn't been in a pool yet). I am suspecting a grass allergy or something like that.............but what do I do about it? He is a very active kid and keeping him off the grass isn't an option. I would prefer a natural treatment if possible, but I'll do anything to stop all this scarring that is happening.
The spots look like skin colored bumps (pencil eraser size), then get red and he itches them open. The sores stay small and ooze a little until they scab and he picks it---then it starts all over again.
A dermatologist gave us some salve, but said don't use it too much. Well, he would need it all the time so that did no good.
Thanks for the help!
