  • What it sounds like is a viral rash. They usually aren't contagious after the fever goes away. I would get her into the doc tomorrow just to make sure.

  • Is it on her back and belly too? If so it could be strep. I would take her to the doc.

  • Last winter this happened to several of our neighbors. It turned out that they had undiagnosed strep throat and all had scarlet fever. Get her tested....
