C Shaped skin rash


Yesterday my son developed a raised c shaped mark on his thigh, he had been crying a few mins earlier as he had dropped a toy so I assumed it has caught his leg and caused the mark!

However, it never turned into a bruise and by bath time it had disappeared so I thought maybe it had just been a scratch.

When I dressed him this morning he had the same shaped mark on the top of his arm, exactly like the leg one but smaller!!

Anyone know what this may be? I have looked all over the internet with no look!! If its still there later I'm gonna ring the docs!!

Cheers

Nope def not like that and they keep going!! Later in the day the one on his arm had gone then he had three on his back near nappy line and this morning nothing!! I'm thinking it could be an allergic reaction to something!!

I will keep an eye on it and if it comes back I will take him to docs x

It cannot be ringworm. They do not go away right away and show up somewhere else. I know because my son had one once long ago.
