My 7yr old grandson had a line about 3ins. long break out on his arm then a day later another line on his stomach about 4ins. long. they're about 1/8 to 3/16 in. bumps in a line that is slightly curved. I just noticed another line on the other side of his stomach. It doesn't look severe, and don't seem to bother him much but they have me concerned? I've never seen anything like them,,, they're the same as his skin color but all 3 lines are just one bump after another and unusual???
I suggest you take him to the ER, they can do test, etc., just to be safe.
Hope he gets better.
I agree, or get him to his dr in the am. If it itched I'd say possibly scabies, but they itch badly. I can think of no childhood illness that would break out in lines like that.
It's spring, and this time of year kids playing outdoors frequently will get a line of rash, so most likely it's poison oak of ivy, but is could be many things. If it is not spreading and not causing undo discomfort I would save the money on the ER visit like few others have recommended and try some Caladryl lotion and see if it gets better.
I was a rough and tumble outdoor kid, had my mom ran me to the ER every time something new popped up I would have bankrupted the family. If your grandson recently tried climbing a tree he probably came in contact with some poison ivy. I can remember a miserable time as a kid where I got 3/4 the way up a Fig tree to steal some figs only to learn I was covered in fire ants from head to toe, I spent a few days in bed after those several thousand stings taking Benadryl. My mom felt so sorry for me she couldn't bring herself to whoop my rear for trying to steal the neighbors figs.
