Q.

Allergies?

He has had the rash for about a week/10 days, and it hasn' t spread v much at all. No rash on the hands/feet, but they do itch. The rash looks like folliculitis, and he also has a touch of diarrhoea. He has had stomach cramps before today which kept him up for hours at night. Do I go to a dermotoligist/ someone who deals with allergies?

I cannot be sure about your child's rash from the information you have given me here. Please inform me about your son's age and whether he has had any antibiotics recently or has had any fever.
