Your little son's skin rash is probably due to a virus skin infection called 'molluscum' These little pimples spread rapidly due to scratching and are very itchy.Unfortunately there is no effective treatment but the molluscum pimples will clear up by themselves after several months.Read more about 'molluscum' on Google.
