my baby has a rash on his chin - coxsackie virus?

Ryder was diagnosed with coxsackie virus on Thursday of last week.
Friday, Saturday and today he seems to be fine and happy with no fever. I looked inside his mouth and he doesn't have any sores left but he has a red rash on his chin. The sores on the inside of his mouth were white. I believe its only irritation but can it possibly be from the virus?

He has plans tonight to go play with another toddler tonight and I'm wondering if you guys think its okay for him to go play? I dont want to infect the other child but Ryder seems to be fine for 3 days now.
