  • I would call the dr. tomorrow...My son had this red spot that started out like the size of a dime so i thought it was some kind of bite or something,but then over a couple of days it grew and started looking kind of scaley and blistery at one end-it ended up bigger than a half-dollar,and when I took him to the dr. it ended up being a staph infection which he needed antibiotics for,it could be nothing,or maybe a reaction to medicine if he's taken something different? I'd just call his dr. in the morning so you can find out for sure!
