What is this rash?!

5 year old has had a rash over his body for a week now. They are little circles all over but don't itch. He doesn't have any other symptoms, but is a bit snotty. I'm thinking it's a post viral thing as he is as full of beans as ever! Did the glass test and it goes away.

It's half term this week but I'm going to feel weird sending him to school next week and they are bound to say something! The GP is a nightmare to get an appointment and I'm definitely not going to A&E, they would laugh me out if the place!

I think I'm just going to ignore it!

Go to the pharmacy!

Sounds like hives. In young children, hives outbreaks are something like 85% down to a reaction to a virus. Happened to DS when he was 5 after a nasty cold.

Antihistamines are the go to treatment.
