My 5-month-old son has had red bumps on the soles of his feet for at least four weeks now. We have run the gamut with the doctor's diagnoses. First we thought it was hand, foot, and mouth disease, but that was ruled out due to lack of fever and duration. The next diagnosis was infant acne, and just one week ago we were thinking it might be an allergic reaction to his socks (the rubber nonskid ones). As the bumps dry out, they tend to peel and go away, but more keep returning. Is there anything we might be missing? The bumps appear to make him itch, and at times his entire foot is bright red. Under advice, he has not worn socks since the last diagnosis, but with winter here, I would really like to know how to clear up his condition.
