For the past few weeks my 12 year old son has been waking up with itchy welts. They are all different sizes most bigger than a mosquito bite but not always. They aren't the perfect circle that you usually see in a bite.
Of course I have stripped his bed and washed everything but it doesn't seem to have helped.
They are the worst when he wakes up and are mostly on his chest and back but often times on his arms though never on his legs.
We have a dog and a cat, neither sleep with him and they are not new pets.
There is no new medication for us or for the pets.
At first it seemed like he was only getting them here and not at his Dad's house (every other weekend) but this past weekend he went camping with his Dad and got them pretty bad.
Also, we have 7 people in this house and he is the only one having this issue.
I made an appointment with the ped that does the boys physicals for sports every year. He is an ok guy for physicals but at the last appointment went out of his way to tell me how dangerous homebirth is and that I will HAVE to take the baby to the ER immediately for a vitamin K shot
Whatever buddy! I guess my concern is that he will suggest meds and not really have any idea what is causing the welts though I'm not sure I could blame him as I am quite confused myself.
Has anybody else seen this? Any suggestestions would be great.
