What the heck is this all over DS?????

He's got this all over his body, even his face!!! The pic doesn't do it justice. Those bumps are more red in real life. Could it be chicken pox? I haven't heard of anyone at his school having it.

Could it be an allergic reaction to his antibiotics?

He doesn't have a fever and he's in good spirits.

When I had my rxn to antibiotics I was very uncomfortable, hot and itchy. I had a feeling that something was not right. I had hives all over and I turned bright pink like a sun burn all over. Then I stArted to faint.
By this point I was in the ER and they gave me a bunch of meds to stop the rxn.

Give him some Benadryl if you have it. If the spots clear up, you will know it is an allergic reaction. Probably the antibiotics.
