First noticed on Tuesday

On the hands looks like milia.

On the back looks more like allergy.

Take him to urgent care.

Milia resolves on its own.

Here is a write up by the mayo clinic

we don't have health insurance until July. His dad lost his job and lost his health insurance as well. Should I take him to urgent care now? His breathing is ok. He acts completely normal. I just know it will be expensive.
Pediatrician: DrRussMd, Board certified general medicine replied 1 year ago

I don't think watching it for a day will be a problem.

and how tested?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
400 mg BID

swab
Pediatrician: DrRussMd, Board certified general medicine replied 1 year ago

how much does he weigh?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
46 lbs
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
$175.00
Pediatrician: DrRussMd, Board certified general medicine replied 1 year ago

dose is OK

Presentation is very unusual.

Make sure the doctor sent the swab for culture as well.

175 dollars is worth it if it is strep

Not treating it can have bad outcomes.

If it was a rapid strep test, some can be false positive.

I would ask for the culture for 175

i do think it was an unusual presentation.
Pediatrician: DrRussMd, Board certified general medicine replied 1 year ago

Check on the culture to make sure.

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.
