anybody have...?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
a child who developed a rash covering a portion of their body? If so what was the diagnosis? My dd has developed a rash out of nowhere..It started this morning and seems to be spreading. There has been no changes in anything she eats, drinks, or uses. No new detergent, body wash, or lotion. She got a flu shot Thursday but i dont think that would cause a rash 2 days later. she has no fever and doesnt act differently. Can anybody help? I want to take her to express care because there is no reason for it, but at the same time the only symptom she has is the rash. She also has had a runny nose for the past 4 days.

its kinda bumpy and soft.

Quoting MrsRinehart2010:

 does it feel bumpy or scaly kind of lacey. Most people describe scarlet fever as lacey but to me if feels bumpy.


Quoting Anonymous:

I've looked at Google alot today...lol. They are all more severe than what she has.


Quoting MrsRinehart2010:


 maybe google , i know it sounds silly but you can usually get a pretty good visual on what other rashes look like an get a decent idea on what it maybe. I use google aot before we go to the docotr lol and Im usually spot on what my girls have lol. obviously no substitute for doctor but it can give you an idea on what you are dealing with



Quoting Anonymous:

im not sure. My grandma thinks it could be kawasaki disease because that's how i started out when i had it. and i read that children from parents who have had it are twice as likely to get it..that thought scares me.



Quoting MrsRinehart2010:



 thanks , shes 5 she also has a ruptured ear drum as well thats why they think she got the scarlet fever with the strep this time lol. But she seems to be fine today actually a little wild lol.




But could it be hives?




Quoting Anonymous:

:( i hope she feels better. How old is she?




Quoting MrsRinehart2010:




 my daughter was dignosed with scarlet fever this week lol. she also had strep which it can be associated with but doesnt have to be my daughter has had it over 25 times with no rash but just happend to get it this time. btw my daughter never shows symptoms of strep except dry heaving an kidney infection not the normal symptoms lol

Fifth's disease? Maybe, my daughter developed a strange rash that spread over her entire body one weekend when she was 4. A couple doses of Benadryl and warm baths and it went away. I think it was fifth's disease, but it was never officially diagnosed.

Does it look like this? I got this off Google. It's an image of the rash that develops from Fifth's Disease.

Has she had the measles vaccine?  It can have a low grade fever, runny nose, cough, and rash.
