My four year old son has these bumps only on his stomach that have been there for about 4-5 months. I thought when I first noticed them that it was heat rash or something like that but now it is freezing outside and he still has them. They are just concentrated on his abdomen and chest and some are flesh colored and look pus filled but aren't....some are pimple-like and they seem to be changing some of them - like drying out. The last couple of days there is a dry ichy redness showing up all around the bumps and they are starting to itch - as if they are drying up???? They didn't itch before. I only have an individual insurance plan which only covers major medical or I would have already taken him to the doctor....any ideas???????
