Can't really tell by the picture.

Quoting soymujer:Can't really tell by the picture.
I can't tell either.
Yeah the pic is too blurry to tell anything.
Looks like it, try some cortisone cream on it, that will help with the itching and irriation.. if it gets bigger and not any better in a couple days though then I'd be concerned. But Cort cream should help alot, put it on a couple times a day.
No worries! I hope it has gotten better.
Quoting mama-smurf:Ill take a better picture when he gets home. Won't be long. Sorry.
Quoting Saharra:Try some Benedryl cream.... Or you can use the liquid, but DO NOT USE BOTH! Or you can use the liquid and then the cortisone cream. Should help with itching and swelling. It kinda looks like a bug bite to me that he had a bad reaction to (from what I can see on my phone ;) also ice it for 15 min on, 15 min off. If it looks like it's growing quickly- (I didn't see how long he had had it!), take him in. But I suspect if he woke up with it (which is what my kids do), and he was at school all day he's probably ok as long as it's not near the neck or face. (Which it looks like you are good there ;) If you want- you can take a pen or marker (just know marker will get on everything but it washes out easy) and mark around the outside of the red circle on his arm. Watch for two hours. If the red goes out of the circle drastically in that time, you need to go in.
Other then that, I think he will be good to go :) Can you tell we've done bug bites a number of times? My kids are allergic to every bug outside! I think I'm gonna get a bubble to put them in for the summer......
