Cold Rash?

A friend of mine just had a baby 9 wks ago. Her little one got sick with a cold and a few days after the cold started she got some kind of rash on her chest, forhead neck and a little on her tummy. It looked like heat rash. The docs say it is a "cold rash". Have any of you heard of it?

  • It was at the same time as the cold. She does have a fever. The weird thing is that it's going away as she gets better. I'm almost thinking that it's caused from her puking up her formula. you know she pucks gets her outfit wet and it causes the rash. But her mom says thats not what the doc says.
    Whatever she's getting better.
