Virtual appointment: During a virtual appointment you may upload a photo or review with a HT specialist. There are many reasons that toddlers with viral symptoms develop a rash. Usually the rash self resolves. If your child is taking antibiotics, an allergic reaction to the medication should be considered. Impetigo is a skin infection with a characteristic appearance. Watch for signs of peeling, red eyes and swelling.

Evaluation is needed: You need to see your physician. You may need a dermatologist to diagnose this rash as it may be the best clue to everything that is happening.
