Doctor can examine: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. Head and body bumps on might be measles but that is less likely in a vaccinated child (but it does happen sometimes). Rashes are common with other viral infections in children. Also possible is an allergic reaction to something, or some other causes. Doctor can look at it on video or in-person.
