  • Did she eat anything diff?? It could be an allergy or maybe even a virus. My dd had Fifths Disease and thats what it did to her. Keep your eye on it and call your Dr in the morning

  • has she been on penicillin or any other kind of medication.. Does the day care have permission to give her any kind of medication?

  • As long as she is acting herself and breathing normal then dont get stressed about it. Def ask the daycare if they gave her anything new. Or as I said it may just only be a virus. Shell be fine :)

  • If it almost looks like a tear drop on the end of the bumps then its chicken pox. Otherwise its prob not

  • Sounds more like measles than chicken pox, German Measles has very low if any fever, especially in young children & passes relatively fast.

  • The only medication she's on is tylonal that's all, i'm not really sure if daycare gave her anything new, but the dots are just like dots, but red. She's been cranky lately but its her 3rd tooth coming in. I don't really know how measles look like but my mom said it maybe it but i don't think so, they're just dots.

  • I would take her in. When it comes to any sort of rashes and you are un sure what they are it is best to get them checked out. She could have a variety of things. Anything from strep to measles to who knows what is going around at the time. Get her checked out and that way your mind can be at ease too. Hope she feels better and soon!

  • It could be a heat rash.Its too early for it to be chicken pox

  • rashes are pretty common with alot of things. so a rash itself is hard to diagnos. Is she sick at all? Does she have any congestion, or perhaps soemthign that seems like a signus infection or pink eye?
