my son has a rash over his torso, neck and arms. Doesn't itch or hurt and he's fine in himself. Someone said he should be tested. Should he?

If he doesnt have any other symptoms I wouldnt get a test. If you're concerned about the rash of itself then contact your GP.

How old is he? Does he have any other symptoms?

Rash is a relatively common symptom in children, yes

The zoe symptom tracker app/site has pictures of the common types of rashes, as do other medical sites.
