I have a three year old with a rash and I'm trying to figure out what it is. The skin is raised in patches like cat's spots. They're not colored, but seem to itch a little. The child ha no fever or obvious signs of discomfort.
He at a normal diner: spagehetti with green peppers, mushroom, and onions. He did not play outside or come in contact with any animals besides the indoor house cat, which never previously bothered him.
I am not sure what cat's spots are. It sounds like a case of the hives. Hives are a rash that grows into large, raised welts. They are itchy. They are an allergic reaction to something.
It sounds like hives to me, too. But give this website a shot - it's great for self-diagnosing rashes. Good luck! Christy
BTW, if it is hives (allergic reaction), you may never figure out what caused it. I've gotten them many times throughout my life, sometimes I figure out what caused it, most times I don't :)

My first thought was "Fifth Disease"...check it out, if not hives could be that. Lacy like rash, that is not very itchy. He's a little young for it, but could be it.
