  • my son gets this when he gets a fever or a cold... my doc always says its not very common, but if they go away within a few hours or fade throughout the day then its just hives that come with having a little fever or cold.. if they dont go away, then u should worry.

  • Kinda sounds like Rosiolia (not sure of the spelling) but my daughter had the same thing. Kids under the age of 2 get it, it isnt contagious. But it starts with a high fever and then 2-3 days later it turns into a rash, and it gets worse before it gets better, it looks very much like chicken pox or the meas and mumps. But i would call the dr to get checked out just to be sure. Hope he feels better!
