My DD (2.5) has these small marks all over her body but mainly on her thighs/upper arms and shoulders. From a distance they look like spots but they are more like dry skin. Rough to the touch. I've noticed them over the last couple months and thought it was eczema but they seem to be getting worse. They are most apparent after a bath.
I've tried aveeno, diprobase and Dream Cream (From Lush) but they don't seem to be getting any better. I've noticed her itching a lot more too.
Could it just be dry skin? Anything else I could try on her? We now only bath every other night.
I couldn't get her to stay still long enough for clear pics but hopefully you get they idea.
Looks like it could be guttate psoriasis- I have it and it flares up from time to time. Took ages for the doc to diagnose it as it's not that common, but a good steroid cream (dovobet) clears it up quite quickly. Worth asking gp if that's what it is, but it sounds like it from your description.
It looks very similarly to a post viral rash I developed after a flu like virus a couple of years ago. If it is a post viral rash it'll go on its own eventually, mine took around three months to completely clear.
