18 month old with rash?

Over an hour period she's developed a rash on her belly, chest, legs and back of arms. They are teeny tiny red bumps very close together. No fever, not lethargic. Drinking and playing fine. Any deas? Im gonna take her in in the morning anyways but still curious tonight.

  • sounds like allergic reaction, could be laundry soap, food, or even dander. I get the same thing from dryer sheets. Doctor will probably prescribe children's benedryl.

  • I called and they said as long as its not hives and there isn't a fever present they think its just viral and as long as she's ok through the night to bring her in in the am!
