He does NOT pick at it, not even unconsciously. It burns and he does not want to touch it at all. He is very good about washing and keeping clean. Of course he does have dirty hands all day long in school... (9 years old)
I though it might be impetigo, and that's what it looks like to me, too. But why would it come only in winter? And heal in summer?
He is outside all the time. Even when it's cold and raining. He is not an inside kid at all. So, plenty of sunshine. He eats very well, mostly organic, no milk, no hormones, no meat. Lots and lots of fruit and veggies. I would say he has about the best diet of any kid I can think of.
I just can't figure out what it is?
If it is impetigo, why only in winter, and why does it heal in summer?
Steroid cream and the like is NOT an option.
