  • I think that sounds kind of like chicken pox, has she been to the doctor yet?

    Did she run a fever? It could also be a fever rash.

  • she hasn't run a fever at all. Yesterday when I picked her up you could barely see it. I sent her to daycare and they sent her home. And now the dots are more visible now.

  • It could be chicken pox, but there are a few other infections and viruses that little ones get with a red bumpy rash. I would take her in to see the doctor.
