Hello doctor,

I have a 2 year old daughter. She is breaking out with red dots all over her body. They do not look like measles or chicken pox. She weighs 30 pounds and has no other symptoms. I have tried giving her a child allergy medication because I thought she might have developed an allergy to dog hair. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I need more information for a quality answer.

  • The onset of symptoms, duration? any itching? associated fever or weight loss? history of jaundice? any relevant family history?
  • The site of red spots? is it distributed to a specific area? because it can indicate etiology.
  • Size of spots? it varies according to etiology.
  • Photo of these spots will help us in proper diagnosis.
  • Any bleeding from the affected site?

It could be ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura)/other hematological disorders/allergy/infection/HSP (Henoch-Schonlein Purpura) and many other disorders can present like this. We need to investigate these.Advice:

  • Get done Complete Blood Count (CBC) from a good laboratory with peripheral blood smear, look for platelet count/size/clumping in the smear.
  • Get done coagulogram (PT/APTT/INR/PTI) from a blood sample.
  • Do not give any medication.
  • Review with above-mentioned information and reports.
