My son started to develop a rash on his arms and face a week ago and it has progressed into full blown lumps all over his face, but nowhere else on his body, apart for the odd 2 or 3 on the lower part of his arms. These lumps seem to be a bit itchy to him, but otherwise he is perfectly fine. He has no difficulty breathing and shows no flu like symptoms, it is just the rash.
I took him to the doctor who could not explain it but put him on 3 day course of redipred and phenergen, but these had no effect but to make my son very irritable. I then took my son to the hospital where 3 more doctors looked at him and the best they could come up with was eczma.
I am sure it is not eczma as it is confined to his face and in no way looks like any eczma I have ever seen before.
The rash looks like little pimples and covers his whole face and in areas where they are built up it almost looks like a burn scar. It is very rough to touch.
I also have a daughter who has not caught whatever this rash is.
Both children are fully immunised.
Please help!! :confused:
