  • my daughter only got the flat bump rash and that was the end of it, maybe this is something else.

  • That sounds more like fifths disease. Might check into it. Did she have a low fever or high fever? Slapped face look? I thought sandpaper like rash was key for scarlet fever. I am not sure about your diagnosis, follow up on it and see.
