My 5yr old son has had this rash or I don’t know what it could be, looks like baby acne, for 3 days now. He hasn’t ate anything different than usual, so I don’t know if it could allergy from some type of food he ate, since he nvr had this reaction to it before, only thing he ate different was vanilla with chocolate cover ice cream bars. He has ate ice cream, we usually get normal ice cream and this was 1st time he had ice creams bars, but could he really get some reaction to that? its only on his face and neck, and just few barely on rest of the body. Its itching him, even his hair, he takes showers every day, he says he has polka dots. They are tiny like baby acne – buts its weird because our house isn’t hot and he isn’t sweating, its still cold outside too and snow all over. As well he did take an antibiotic for an ear & eye infection he had couple days ago. He’s done taking it (which he has taken before as well and no reaction like this). On the Picture I posted, you can barely see it, but u can see the forehead and it’s like that all over and it’s getting worse. What you think it could be? on the pic doesnt look so bad, but you can actually see if from far away and its gettin more red and worse on his cheeks.

It might have been the medication, even tho he had it before sometimes your body becomes allergic to it. It happened to my husband and daughter with amoxicillin. Look up antibiotic rash and see if it compares.
