I have two boys. One is 2 years and one is 8 months. They both have a spotted, non-blanching, reddish rash in the middle of their low backs - not raised, no texture and does not appear to be itchy.

I've tried to find something similar to it online, and I can't seem to get any information. They have no other symptoms and my two year old developed it earlier today, while my infant has had it for a couple weeks. I passed it off as just a skin discoloration or maybe developing freckles when it was my little guy - but when the same exact thing showed up in the same spot on my toddler, I started to wonder about it.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for reading

here is a picture of my toddler's back. The spots are several shades darker to the eye than in this photo... and this photo is also pretty blurry - but that was as good as it was going to get with my camera.
