  • It could be 5th's disease. My DD had it a couple weeks ago, her rash started that suddenly too. Nothing you can do about it though, but if it is that, and she's been near any pregnant women, they need to get to their docs ASAP.

  • I'd call the school and find out what it was that she ate. Then I would call and get her in to see the doctor.

  • Yep, give the Benadryl, then call the doctor and ask to be referred to the allergist. They'll see what she's allergic to. It's not a fun visit, but awesome to know what makes your kids ill.
