  • Lots of stuff...Fifth didease(a virus) or some othe measly virus. Is he feverish, sore throat,itchy, new foods...sounds like some virus(BTW are her fingers or toes peeling?) or are these larger lumps like glands? Make sure you are seeing the Pediatrician, not a GP or Nurse practician

  • IT COULD BE ANY THING ,BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE THE CHICKEN POXS OR HIVES. WHAT SIZE ARE THE BUMPS AND ARE THEY IN LITTLE PATCHES OR THEY JUST BUMPS SPREAD THOUGH HER BODY. BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER NOW HAS BUMPS AND HER'S IS CHICKEN POXS I THINK SO SHE GOING TO THE DOCTORS TO SEE WHAT HER'S IS. IF YOU WANT ME TO I CAN ASK HER DOCTOR TODAY AND LET YOU KNOW OKAY PLEASE GIVE ME SOME FEED BACK.

  • You took her to the doc and they didn't tell you anything? I'd certainly take her back and if you still get nothing then get a second opinion. It's hard to say without knowing exactly what the bumps look like. Is it a bunch of singular bumps all over, or are there patches of bumps very close together? are the bumps big or are they tiny. Do they look like bug bites, or do they look like poison ivy? (not saying they are either just wondering what it looks more like). Are they tender to the touch or are they itchy?
