Hard to say: Rashes can be associated with illness or reaction to foods/exposures. You didn't describe the rash or the level of fever without which little can be said. The teeth are not the issue. If she spooks you have her seen. If she will take enough fluids to pee every 6 hrs she is not dehydrated & you may be able to watch & see if it resolves on its own.
