My 12 year old son has broken out in what looks like dry patches all over his body. They are itchy and some are slightly painful for him. He started off with a rash on his lower jaw which went away. This was proceeded by white patches on his feet and now legs, abdomen, back and arms.

Sorry but since that's a different subject the rules here say we need a new page for me to discuss that with you
