My 3yr old has roundish, red raised bumps - one on his wrist and 4 on his legs. I took him to the dr at the beginning of June and we told that they were scars. Problem is he never had an injury in these places and when I told the dr this he said to call if I notice a change. So I have been keeping an eye on them and they have increased in size and look like ringworm. He doesn't show any other symptoms associated with ringworm - they do not itch or irritate him and no one else in our household, in our family, or at his pre-school has developed ringworm which is said to be extremely contagious (he has had them for almost over 4 mos now and no one else has it???). I have an appt with a different dr this evening for him because his school has now said that they are not comfortable letting him attend unless we can provide a drs note stating that it is NOT ringworm. I am wondering if there are different forms of ringworm that are not contagious or could this be something totally different? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
