We have been swimming almost all day when we were leaving and I went to change my sons clothes I noticed red bumps and splotches on both upper inner thighs, at first I though it may have been from the mesh inside his swim trunks but now I am not so sure. By the time we got home he was crying it hurt and they had become two large welts, one on each leg. Does anyone know what may have caused this and if I should take him to the doctor? There is no chlorine in the water so I know it isn't a reaction to that.Answer Question

Do they look like they are filled with water? Was he sitting on the pool steps often? I used to get "strawberries" on my big toes when I would swim....from rubbing against the bottom of the pool. It could just be an irritation from that.
