Maybe: Your pediatrician is likely right, but when it comes to your child's health there is nothing wrong with getting a second opinion. Sometimes we can benefit from getting things explained in a different way. ...Read more

Well 1st things 1st: Red bumps could describe at least 20 different common problems so without a picture and some additional detail about the bumps and events surrounding their appearance, I can't give you a useful answer.
