Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.
I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?

I find it interesting that your child has both ADHD and bleeding both which are linked to Vitamin K defeciency. I would have your child tested for Vitamin K, D, Zinc, iron, hemoglobin defects like sickle cell, and a great history and physical from a doctor who takes the time to check for other sources. These are blood tests by the way. He should also have ALCAT allergy testing for foods.
From this study (2 months ago):
Rash only comes when I drink alcohol it seems, ( 2 -3 times a month ) and last for months only on buttucks
From this study (4 months ago):
Rash spread from inside of thighs to back and arms
