Does anyone know what this rash is?

Okay, mommies, need your help. So this week all the kids had run high fevers off and on, each aprox 2 days. Khalea broke out in a rash that started around her ankels moved up her leggs and on the inside of her elbows. After a few hours, it dissapeared. I had called a nurse and talked to him... he was an idot and sa...id I should rush her to the ER and make sure it wan't a staph infection... course we waited and it went away. But she jut woke up from nap.. and its back.

  • Could be the fever come out in the form of a rash...I know that with high fevers sometimes comes rashes. Maybe it disappeared when the fever came down a bit and it came back after the nap because the fever went back up.
    Is it bothering her at all? Like itching, burning or anything?

  • not even close to meningitis. Meningitis does not present with a rash but high ferver, confusiton, stiff neck (tail tail sign there), headache, sensitivity to lights, vomiting, usually incoherant.. She has NO sypmtons other then slightly swollen lymphnodes, and fever, but that was last tuesday. That is when the fever apeared firts, but then dissapeared about 30 minn after, then it has reapeared and dissapeared a few times since.
