DD, three and a half, has got these patches of raised bumps, kind of like goosebumps that don`t go away. She has, I think, four patches of them, about the size of a quarter to a silver dollar, on her back. They are itchy when she tries to go to sleep, but they haven`t opened at all. They aren`t red.
The first one as been there for several weeks now, without much change. I`ve been putting a heavy beeswax balm on them when she lets me, but that hasn`t done anything to make it go away. Her skin generally is pretty weak right now, as she had impetigo in the early summer, quite a few bad mosquito bites summer to fall, and then chicken pox in December. The inside of her elbows have a little redness, and she has dry red cheeks when she won`t let me put on the balm.
Anyway, none of this is causing her enough discomfort to warrant a trip to the doctor, and her regular dry skin I can control with the balm, but these patches are puzzling me. I should hate to realize that I have been ignoring the beginnings of something that will suddenly erupt into a medication-needed itchiness. What do you think -does it sound like a regular dry skin thing or something else?
