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.

    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.

     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

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

    I dont think so. dd is only 2. The rash isnt on her face either...just her back and top of shoulders.
