  • To me it sounds like she is allergic to something. It would be best to take her to a doctor though.
    Hope she is better soon!

  • I'm trying to think of a virus that causes that, might be called roseola? If it is it's just a 24 hour bug that everyone gets usually when they are babies. If she's not better by tomorrow I would take her to her doctor. Especially if her fever is at or above 102 degrees. Any fever over 102 is indicative of infection.

  • I am really thinking it sounds like an allergic reaction. At least call the doctor. Most offices will have a nurse or a doctor contact you back if they aren't available right when you call. They could tell ou better and I am certain it would ease your mind if you had her checked out.

  • It's not chicken pox! There are many viruses that cause a rash to develope. It usually shows up on the torso and does not itch or cause pain at all. It just looks like little tiny red dots all over. The child doesn't really even notice it's there. If it is an allergic reaction the skin will be red and blotchy and itchy. This viral rash usually only lasts a couple of days and goes away on it's own.
