He's coughing, sore throat, fever and now he's broken out with a rash of little red spots all over his face.  Only on his face though, no where else.  Anybody ever dealt with this????  Seen it??

OMG! My 7week old just had this! He got spots one day that you could see under the skin but couldnt feel, then by the next day they were spread down his legs and you were able to feel them. He als had a pea sized 'bubble' come up in his vein behind his ear. He started getting sick Monday and is almost completly over it today. The doctors said it was a virus and just told me to keep giving him tylonal. Hope this helps

Just looked at his tongue... nothing there.  The closer I look at his face, the more it looks like broken blood vessles.  Is it possible to cough so hard that you break blood vessles in your face?

Um, yeah, I'd be glad to if I could get out of my driveway.... we're kind of in a SNOW STORM right now.  Besides that, I don't take my kid for every little sniffle.  I was just asking if anybody experienced this.

101.7 right now.  It was up to 102.3 this morning.  I've been giving him Motrin and Sudafed Cold and cough... and the sore throat disolving strips.
