Weird red dots on baby's skin- 11 months old

my girlfriend's son is 11 months old. 2 days ago she noticed little red dots on his body, mostly on his stomach. they were flat to the skin, didn't seem to itch or bother him, no heat coming from them and he has no fever. she thought it was the change in laundry soap that caused it but now they are getting worse, more, larger and even on his face.
i do realize that you are not doctors and that he does need to see one so please don't suggest that. she'll be calling his pedi in the morning but for now.. anyone know what they could be?
maybe from chlorine? he has been in the pool once or twice a day everyday for weeks now.

  • Could be heat rash but those are usually on the amrs and legs. its not an alergic reaction because he isnt itching. my 11 month old got a rash on her forehead with bumps, but when it spread was small dots. they didnt grow though, but all she had was a viral infection from a cold. took her to the er and they gave her some IB profin and sent us home to wait it out.

  • it could very well be an allergic response to the pool's chlorine.

  • squeakette- did your baby have other symptoms? this boy is not sick, no fever, no coughing or anything.

  • it could be in response to a fever from a few days ago..

    if it was an allergy to eggs or chlorine it would have dissipated by now and you would have seen it closer to the time he encountered them.

    A heat rash is typically risen, so I don't think it is that.

    It could still be an allergy, however I don't think it is due to what was listed so far.

  • she can also check out webmd.com and do a symptoms checker, and it will list possibilities. Make sure to be specific as you can about it.
