OK: Maybe they are mosquito bites or some sort of insect bites, etc. He can try treating them topically from meds he can get at the pharmacy for itching bites, and if they persist, then have him see the Dr. for an evaluation of the rash. Good luck. ...Read more

How long?: If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some otc antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. Otherwise topical Hydrocortisone cream should be tried. If it still did not work, see an allergist. ...Read more
