Last weekend my son got stung by a sea nettle while swimming in the Chesapeake bay and initially the skin on his stomach was raised and red, but after a short period of time the redness and swelling went away. Tonight I was changing him into his pajamas I noticed that some red spots have reappeared on his stomach in the area of the stings. Is this normal for the healing process or have you heard of allergic reactions taking a week to appear. He isn't complaining of pain, itching, or difficulty breathing so I know it isn't a major allergic reaction. Called the doctors nurse line and she said to call the doctor in the morning. Just trying to see if this is normal.
