Vaccine related??: If your child received the MMR vaccine as is customary at that visit, the lymph nodes can swell & a rash show up about a week later. You may want to discuss this with the kids doc.

Possible Reaction?: Caseypeloquin;
did your daughter receive vaccines at her visit? Usually the MMR and varicella vaccines are given at 1 yr old check-ups. Since these are live viruses she could be having and adverse reaction to the immunizations. Notify her physician of the situation as soon as possible. If she starts having difficulty breathing call 911 or bring her to the nearest er immediately.
