Question About Bumps On My 10 Yr Old's Leg?

Recommended Posts

He is 10 and has had  white bumps on the front and back of his leg for 2 years. We had him seen and and the pa at the derm.'s office said she did not know what it was but thought it was an immune response and that it would go away. Well of course they have not gone away and are getting quite worse. Most of the bums are white like little marbles under his skin. They are oval in shape and about the size of pencil erasers. Some are bigger. They are grouped together right behind his knee on one leg and then he has a few on the knee cap. A few are red on the back of his knee. They feel very raised and hard to the touch. He says they itch. They look quite funny as well. What do you think this is? Any advice would be helpful.

 

I have confirmed celiac. Ds did not test positive. But has always had very sensitive skin. He carries an epipen because his skin is so sensitive. 

 

What do you think this could be and how do I treat the itch? We will go back to the derm. this week and will not see that useless pa.

I have no idea what it is but it sure doesn't sound like dh. It's a mystery to me.
