I am also sorry that your post has been removed. I think that we made a diagnosis of papular urticaria for your son's rash due to sand flea allergy. You can give him Thiamine HCL tablets 25 mg [half a 50mg tablet] daily for 3 months.The tablet can be crushed and sprinkled over some of his food once a day.
