Hello,

Thank you for your question. My name is***** - I am a Dermatologist and will do my best to provide a useful input.

Would a photograph of the affected areas be possible at your convenience?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
They're mostly on his arms and legs a few on his armpits
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
They almost look like acne but itch like crazy.
Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 12 months ago.

How long has he had the rash?

Can you upload a clearer photograph if possible?

Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 12 months ago.

Also any fever or cold?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
About 3 weeks and no he is sleeping. No cold or fever that he has complained about
Expert:  Dr. Nair replied 12 months ago.

Then this is not chickenpox since that clears within 10 days even without treatment. Please upload some more pictures at your convenience and I will take a look.
