Hi,

It is never a good idea to guess about a child's condition. If they did not give you any documents that state the diagnosis, I would phone the hospital and ask for information. That way, you will be researching the right skin condition.

The Mayo Clinic has a slide show of common skin rashes :

You can read more about your son's problem there once you know the name.

Best to you,
