These are not beauty spots but a skin rash called 'papular urticaria' The spots are an allergic reaction to the bite of Cape sand fleas. A single bite can lead to dozens of these spots developing and they can persist of up to 3 months at a time. Children usually grow out of this problem after the age of 6 or 7 years. Give your children Vitamin B1 tablets once daily for 3 months. This is called Thiamine HCL and the dose is 50mg daily for 3 months.Eventually the sand fleas will no longer bite your children.
