Someone please respond, I'm scared...

Earlier, I noticed a small red mark on my son's arm, kinda like a mosquito bite. It didn't look serious, so I didn't worry. He took a nap, woke up, and now he has seven on his arm! They're a little smaller than a dime. My husband had to go into work today and my car is being worked on, so when he gets home, I think we're going to take him to urgent care. What do you think? Should we take him? I don't even know really why I'm asking, because I'm going to probably anyways, but I'm worried as hell right now. :(

  • I would take him in to see the Dr. To me it sounds like an allergic reaction. I break out like that when I eat lima beans.

  • Does your pediatrician have a nurse line or you could try a near by childrens hospital? They can give you some advice on how to keep him comfortable.
