FOLLICULITIS: Dear chris, this condition you describe in brief may be a skin infection caused by staphyloccocal bacteria. I suggest you see your primary care physician asap and have him/her examine the outbreak. If it is bacterial in etiology you will need antibiotic therapy and possibly topical antibiotic therapy to rid yourself of this miserable soundy malady.

Needs to be seen: The rash experienced by your child may be caused by different agents but presented similarly. From the description you provided I came with few possibilities: erythema nodosum (bacterial, autoimmune), insect bites (bed bugs, scabies, mosquito), viral infections (herpetic), vasculatis (hsp), fungal infection (candida), allergy, drugs. The best option- bring your child to pediatrician to see it.

Likely benign: While they could be skin tags, there are many other causes of non-itchy nor red bumps including keratosis pilaris which is a build up of dead skin cells around hair follicles looking like small goose bumps. If they are multiple, insect bites are less likely. Molluscum contagiosum (sounds like Harry Potter!) is also a possibility or warts. See your doctor/dermatologist for confirmation.

Hard to say: Difficult to say without seeing the rash. Reaction to an insect bite is often a cause. If you live in an area endemic for Lyme disease and have been around low lying shrubs or tall grass Lyme disease is a possibility. Various other causes are also possible. If concerned you can have an online consultation at Health Tap. You would upload several images, including close ups in good focus.
