    Default Is it worth going to GP?

    Last week DS was playing in the garden and came inside itching with a rash on his back. I gave him some hay fever syrup. I took him to gp that night and was given mild steroid cream. It started to get better when after playing on the swing 3 days later he came in with the same rash on his tummy. Now it has been 5 days since then and it has changed from a "tiny bumpy all over rash" to 6-10 red itchy bumps, similar to mozzy bits. What else could it be? He just seems to be irritated by it on/off everyday.

    Is he scratching at them? And are they anywhere else like behind his ears or under his arms?

    No just on his chest area and some smaller ones in his back. I have a feeling he is allergic to something outside

    That was my thought. Same thing use to happen to DS when he went outside at a house we use to live at. I asked the doc and he said just to give DS some phenergan.
