Hi all, my ds has been getting nasty raised red rings on his body since this morning.

They come up for about an hour then dissapear but re appear in a different place.

They have varied in size from as large as my hand to a small egg, they are hot to touch.

He has had a slight temp but has been totally himself all day.

I have spoken to our out of hours service and had 3 calls back, told to give calpol and not to worry hmm.

He went to bed fine, any ideas?

It sounds like ringworm. You need to pop him to the GP.

Sounds like ringworm. Nothing to worry about really! Hope he feels better soon though.
