It's probably Ebola.

I was going to go with Asiatic Spitting Cobra with bad aim.

We're not in Asia. Let's be serious, this isn't a laughing matter.

I don't know where he lives....the Huddle is international you know. Maybe they were on vacation.

Was he outside or inside when these came about? It looks like a horsefly bite to me if he were outside, possibly an ant also. I know for myself and my kids, Benadryl is extremely helpful when we have come to a conclusion it's an insect, ant, spider, etc.

Showed a nurse practitioner friend of mine. She says looked like bites, nothing to worry about as long as there is no fever.

As long he he doesn't show other symptoms (fever, swellings, etc.) then it's probably not anything serious like a disease or an allergic reaction. It could be a mild allergic reaction to something. Worst case scenario, you might have bed begs or your kid might have found himself some body lice/mites.

Thanks for the help everyone.

He has cleared up now and I think it was mosquito bites.

When I was a little boy I would have gawd awful sores from it.

Thanks for all the help though!
