My 17 month old son's skin is breaking out in giant red bumps. My husband and I have had him seen twice by the doctor and the first time he only had two big bumps and she thought they were misquito bites. The second time, by a different doctor, just gave him some hydrocortazone cream, which is doing nothing. Now he has about 16 swollen, red bumps spread out over his arms, and legs (mostly), and even has one on his face! They show up over night, look like giant swollen misquito bites, then blister, pop open, oze a clear liquid, then scab up and look horrible! (I too, have been very itchy lately, but mine are just little red bumps that are spread out over my entire body very randomly. They don't swell up, or blister or anything so that may not have anything to do with what my poor little boy has).
