Thank you for your question .

This itchy bump type rash should be evaluated for possible viral infection or contact dermatitis , it would be ideal for him to have examination of rash so that appropriate treatment may be offered to him .

Go for examination please .

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
