Sounds to me like roseola. It's a variation of chicken pox & very common. If you take her to the doc they will give her antibiotics. My daughter had it twice (pretty uncommon but it happens) and we just let it run it's course. We gave her motrin for the fever, loads of nursing (I bulked up on vitamin C & echinacea so she would benefit from it from my milk) and loads of extra love. The whole thing ran it's course in about 4 days, the rash lasted about a week. Just FYI anytime you have a fever accompanied by a rash you know you are dealing with some type of viral infection.
