Question: 3 yr old son has small specks of blood on face after napping
My 3 yr old son has been waking up with this rash occasionally after taking naps. The rash is not raised but instead appears to look like small specks of blood under the skin?? He does not have any allergies that we know of and the rash appears sporadically, although he sleeps in the same place regularly. It will normally disappear within a day or two after first appearance. Any idea what could be causing this?
its definitely not an allergy for sure.
if its spontaneously disappearing after 1 or 2 days, then it may be some kind of skin infection/ rash.
rarely, it may be due to a deficiency of vitamin c and k in the blood or variations in the cellular levels of platelets in his blood.
do get his blood checked once to rule out the possibility of blood derangements.
otherwise he should be fine.
