  • I wouldn't take her to an ER, it's not an Emergency... she is acting fine, has no fever, and isn't bothered by the rash.

    I would wash the area to make sure it's not something she touched and then do nothing else. I wouldn't worry about it at all unless she develops more symptoms.

  • Had she been sick a few days prior to the rash? I know that sometimes when little ones get a virus and it seems to be gone, a couple days later they can break out in a rash. It usually starts on the torso and will go away pretty quickly. So even if she doesn't have symptoms now, she may have had mild symptoms prior to the rash.

  • Maybe heat rash? or have you changed laundry soap or bath soap recently? If she starts getting it in other areas it could even be fifths diesease although its usually younger children that get it...
