Customer Question

My son, 16, complained yesterday afternoon that his legs and body were very itchy. I told him to shower and didn't pay much attention. He has woken at 5.30am saying he hasn't been able to sleep bc of it. I have checked his legs and he has a severe skin reaction all over his legs, back, lip, arms. The Lumps look like massive mossie bites but lots and lots of them everywhere and all over! Should I take him to the hospital? Now? Or I can I wait a few hours till morning?

This is Dr. David

it sounds like he is having hives from a possible allergic reaction on his body.

you should take him to the hospital

he may need steroids or anti-histamines to stop a bad allergic reaction.

sometime he ate or came into contact with could have caused a possible allergic reaction.

he should see a doctor right away.
