  • Take her to the doctor. I think all rashes should be seen by the doc.

  • My dd had that and it turned out to be 5ths disease. Just a virus that passes on its own. Id still take her to get looked at and diagnosed. Dont worry though!

  • Take her to the doc....my son was allergic to his diapers and that kept happening and he kept needing antibiotics.
