Customer Question
My son, 16, complained yesterday...
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.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
