My son has a rash on his neck and a little bit of it on by his temples. They are flat (not raised at all) pinpoint red and purplish spots. They do not blanch (become white of flesh tones) when pressed on. This type of rash is called petechaie.

I am silently freaking out. He has a doctors appointment today at 1:50. I am so nervous.

Don't panic.  You're doing the right thing by taking him to the doctor.  Stay off of google.  Most likely it is nothing.
