My son has a rash that he's had before after football

Resolved Question:

My son has a rash that he's had before after football practice on his feet and ankles. He was using his CPM machine ( just had reconstructive ACL surgery) and he noticed he had the rash on the the foot that had been in the sheep skin support of the machine. It also is less so on his other foot, and now this morning he has it on his inside arm. Right foot is itcy. The rash looks like petechiae, but he also has a completely red area on top of left toes. His cbc was normal, he does get a rash from scented detegents.

I am sorry to know your son`s symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,it seems that your son`s symptoms are due to allergic cause as it may present with similar rash which is itchy.I will advise that you ask the physician to do a physical exam and eosinophil count(mostly found raised)to confirm this cause and prescribe topical hydrocortisone cream which will take care of your son`s symptoms.

Wish you and your son best of health and happiness.
