Probable fungus: If the rash is raised, reddish on the cicunference and regular skin color in the center, this sounds like "ringworm". Ringworm is not caused by a worm but is a fungal infection called tinea corporis. It is common and treatable with topical antifungals. You can try the creams used for athlete's foot or see a doctor for prescription. One source of the infection is pets. Have them checked. ...Read more

Insect allergy?: Good morning, painful rash on back and legs can be due to many causes. One patient developed such a rash after staying in a hotel; my diagnosis was bed-bug-allergy, as the rash was limited to the back of trunk, and back of legs, and the protected areas such as those covered by intimate clothing was not affected. Since your eyes are red and swelling everywhere other causes of need consideration. ...Read more

The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more

Sometimes it can be associated w celiac disease and/or wheat allergy. Nickel can be another trigger. If it worsens please see your doctor. ...Read more
