    It looks a little like heat rash - but I didnt think heat rash was normally itchy...? A trip to the Dr will put your mind at ease. Let us know how it goes xx

    Heat rash shouldn't be itchy, bites look like that too. Do you have animals? Flees maybe?

    she eventually said she was itchy because she was hot. our 1 year old has some as well on top of her chest and back. both are well in themselves and are their usual nutty self. We do have cats but all 3 have recently had flea liquid on them. Also, the amount that was on the 4 year old, I cant see it being flea bites. they wernt there last night and only had them after running around in nursery.
    I will be keeping an eye on both and if it seems to get even slightly worse I will be off to the docs. our docs are a pain, normal appointments take at least 2 weeks and if you phone up at 8am you may get an Emerg ap but only if they think ness
