I am always concerned about a petechial rash anywhere on a child's body as this can be a sign of meningitis or of a platelet deficiency in the blood. The rash can also be due to Purbac which has the tendency to cause allergic reactions. The other reason I am concerned is the question as to why he has the bump on his head and the rash. Is this simply due to a fall or is there some other reason for this-such as a non-accidental injury?
For all of these reasons it is absolutely essential that your son is examined by your paediatrician and the appropriate tests are sent off.
