Q.

Rash

Dear Doc,
My 4yr old returned from Creche, last week Thursday with a rash.
His whole body and face was covered in red pimples, the rash was not itching or irritating him at all, should i be worried. He has been complaining about headaches.
Thank You

It is difficult to be sure about your son's rash without being able to see him. You do not mention whether he has a fever or not.If he has been complaining about a headache the concern is that he may have tick bite fever. It would be best to ask your doctor to see your little son.
