  • Sounds like there is infection and bleeding so I would take him to the doctor. He could have an underlying skin condition like eczema or they could be misquito bites he has been scratching and you know what kind of germs are on the hands of kids. At the very least, he is itchy so I would want to know how to clear it up.

  • I would call the doctor and make an appointment, this could be something serious or even contagious!

  • I would take him to the doctor for a culture, it can be a simple rash, bug bites, or something more serious such as herpes....if anyone in your family gets cold sores they could spread and pop up on odd places!
