I am at a loss. My 7 YO DD came to me sunday morning with tiny red bumps all over her torso, back and bottom. they are itchy, and they do not have any kind of head on them....heatherb and i have been searching all over to try and find what it could be, but to no avail.... None of the conditions we found match what she has...5ths, rubella, measles, chiggers, fleas, nothing....i'm tired. so if you might have some idea, please feel free to post! TIA!

Sounds like what dd will sometimes get when she first begins showing signs of a cold virus. She will have tiny little red bumps that appear anywhere from her trunk, to her legs and arms, to her face. They don't always come with a fever either. I dont' treat them with anything. They go away on their own within a few days.

If you've been swimming in a lake this could also be swimmers itch which is caused by some sort of foreign organism living in the water. In that case I think it's recommended that you treat it like you would any other mild skin reaction. I don't personally react to the little critters but, I know a few people who can't swim in lakes that have been known to carry the ick simply because they are left with a head to toe itchy rash.

Well, when I went to get a picture of my DD's spots, they were very obviously clearing up. Not all gone, but definitely getting better. I think the Prev poster was on to something...esp since mmy 5yo dd has had a fever all day, i think they just experience different symptoms even if it's the same virus. Thanks moms!

My bf's son just had the same thing. She took him to the doctor and was told it was just a virus going around. It would clear up within a day or two and not to worry.
