  • how many bites? bumps? Could be spider bites if its only a couple.. you could also check for lice as when I was little I was allergic to is and got a bad reaction all over. otherwise maybe heat rash? Was it too hot when he was sleeping? Did you change detergent recently?

  • My DD gets the same thing, her doc said it was dust mites. I started buying the bed bug spray and I use it in her room daily, it has been helping.

  • Did he have a virus?? My son gets that when he had or has a virus the Dr. said it's normal for children to react that way. If mot then I don't know but it's always a good idea to call your Dr.

  • Wash the sheets & bumper in hot water. Wash his bed down with a cleaner. Vacuum his room thouroughly. It may be from something he picked up outside in the grass. Check for bedbugs, I heard they are brownish red & go under the mattress. He may also have prickly heat bumps from the heat if he sweats while he sleeps. If he has no fever, just clean his things, keep him cool while he sleeps and wait & see.

  • Has he had a cold recently? Could be a virus, allergic reaction to a food, irritation to a soap or laundry soap you are using, it could be heat rash. Is he a baby and you just introduced a new baby-food? If so stop giving it to him until he is older and try re-introducing it when he is a little older. Call your Dr. if you can not figure out what it could be.
