Possible allergy: She may have an allergic reaction or atopic dermatitis. It is not likely to be related to measles without a fever or cold symptoms. If the rash appeared within four hours of ingestion of a specific food, it may be eliminated from the diet. Allergy testing is indicated if the rash is allergic. Provide a does of an antihistamine after calling your Pediatrician to discuss.
