  • My daughter had a similar rash w/ a low grade fever, my doc out her on an antibiotic just in case. Doc didn't make a definite diagnoses, but said it could be fifth disease.

  • here is a little more info on fifths... Signs and Symptoms fifthdisease_illustrationFifth disease begins with a low-grade fever, headache, and mild cold-like symptoms (a stuffy or runny nose). These symptoms pass, and the illness seems to be gone until a rash appears a few days later. The bright red rash typically begins on the face. Several days later, the rash spreads and red blotches (usually lighter in color) extend down to the trunk, arms, and legs. The rash usually spares the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. As the centers of the blotches begin to clear, the rash takes on a lacy net-like appearance. Kids younger than 10 years old are most likely to get the rash.

  • It could be eczema..but you mentioned a low grade fever. Eczema doesn't cause fevers.

  • To me...it looks like fifths disease, which is contagious. I would contact the doctor again.
