I just noticed spots all over my 17 yr old sons back. I'm pretty sure they weren't there a few days ago. They are flat and red, varying in size, from the size of an eraser on a pencil to a quarter. There does not seem to be any sign of a ring/circle and the color appears to be the same on the entire spot, no lighter color, pus or anything else in the center. They don't look scaley or appear to be insect bites. They don't itch, or feel warm. He didn't even know they were there until I noticed them. After taking a picture with my phone to show him, he said they look the same as something on his inner thighs, I looked and sure enough they are, but they don't appear to be anywhere other then those two areas. The only other thing I can think of that might be connected is that 8 days ago he did have so tests done for possible heart problems, and one was a full body CT scan with contrast to look for anuerysms. Anyone have any idea what these spots could be????? Normally I'd rush him to the doctors but they don't seem to be bothering him any.
