no fever or loss of appetite?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
A little loss of appetite did take to Doctors yesterday did not see spots then just now they said he got inflamed tonsils

ok, I thought that, as it would be unusual to have the rashes without any other symptoms.

The spots look viral, and tend to occur with infection, this tends to go within 7 days, if itchy can use calamine lotion or piriton to calm skin down

Does not look like chicken pox as usually more common in the front than back and more like water blisters

Thank you for your help today

No worries, keep an eye on the spots, any further concerns, let me know but its likely newer spots might continue to crop up. If fever is high or tonsils get worse, then needs to see Dr again
