Any ideas what this is?

Ok for those of you who saw my last post about my son's fever, this is the latest! He has lost the fever but now all these bumps popped up all over his body around lunch time. I think they look like bug bits but there's so many. My friend says her hives look like that so just wondering if any of you ladies have any ideas? He is seeing his paediatrician tomorrow.

I was going to say hives too, even though I have never had to deal with that personally. Did you switch detergents? Anything new on his skin? I missed a previous post, so sorry if this was asked.

Those are hives! Give him some benadryl and an aveeno oatmeal bath. It helps with the itch!

Oh man I think that is the only medicine I currently do not have. Hives are from some
Sort of allergic reaction right?

Looks like hives ... My daughter gets them sometimes after a fever when she's sick

No switch, nothing new, but he did play a lot outside yesterday while hubby and I did yard work so maybe he got into something out there? It's really the only thing I can think of.

Hives. Ydd gets them. Its her only symptom that she has strep. She is a carrier and will always come up positive on rapid tests.
