  • Id take him to see a doctor as soon as you can. It could be nothing red dots are normal for babies and toddlers to get but I would get purple dots checked out!

  • if you press lightly on them do they turn lighter? if not, i would definitely call the doctor. Does he have a fever or anything? That would make a difference too if you are trying to decide whether to call or not.

  • I would take a child with a purple rash to the er. It could be mengicoccal meningitis.

  • My dd got purple lines and spots on her legs and arms. It just turned out to be that she was cold. Try covering up the baby and see if they go away...
