    hi my soon to be 3 year old son has recently been having what originally appeared to be mosquito bites. being that the sites were mainly on exposed areas however the specialist says that they are not from any kind of bites. in his opinion they are some hives that have a yet unidentified origin. i have racked my brain and cant come up with any answers. medicine , bites, laundry soap, grass you name it..... i have chewed on it .with no satisfactory resolution to where and what is causing them is 3 too young to begin allergy shots or something of the like?? this time i took him to see the pediatrician because he is having flu like symptoms with accompanying fever. the two appear to be unrelated but of course his is just an educated guess and mine not even that . any ideas or suggestions. so i don't pull my hair out thank you
