My 4 year old son has been sick the past couple of weeks with a cold. Last night he got a low-grade fever and cried of a headache. I gave him a couple tylenol (under the recommended amount for his age) and put him to bed early. He woke up with a severe sore throat. I was just going to give him a couple more tylenol to ease the pain but now he has come up to me and says "Mom, do I have polka-dots?". I looked and sure enough, he has tiny bumps all over the side of his chest and up near his armpit.
I'm calling the doc to make an appointment right now, but does anyone have any idea what it is? No white spots on the throat so I don't think it's strep.
