When does a rash start to worry you?

A few days I noticed DS had a few very light and tiny bumps across his belly. Since then it's gotten worse, covering the front and back of his torso. The bumps are much more red now. He's acting completely normal, no fever, etc. He doesn't act like they itch.

He had kiwi for the first time a few days back, but that's the only new food I can think of that he's had. This doesn't look like the excema he normally gets. I have no idea what it is.

When do you get worried? Or should I just wait for them to go away unless something else happens? (like fever, etc)

Re: When does a rash start to worry you?

My DS gets weird rashes quite often. I usually don't worry unless the rash has spread quickly, or has blisters or is bleeding. Every once in awhile he will pop up with an unexplained rash everywhere and I really do end up using Benadryl pretty proactively. The closest hospital to us is an hour away and I am always concerned about allergic reactions that may lead to difficulty breathing.

Has he had a reaction to strawberries? My son can't eat strawberries and kiwi affects him the same way since they are a cross.

He's never had a reaction to strawberries, though he's only had those in jam form. I guess it could be the kiwis though.

Re: When does a rash start to worry you?

I'm pretty tolerant when it comes to rashes. I only worry if:

- there's a high fever that doesn't subside on it's own within a couple days
- I can't identify the rash
- It's causing discomfort that I can't ease or it's infected

If you think it's the kiwis, then I'd wait until the rash is cleared for awhile, then try them again. If he gets the rash back, then it's the kiwi, if not, then it was just a virus. Since it's not bothering him or causing problems and he has no other symptoms, I honestly wouldn't worry about it... but that's just me.
