What might be the cause of fine rash on face after having fever for two days? She is 21 years old. Tnx.
Rule out strep: Fever followed by a fine rash could be due to strep & is called scarlet fever. Get seen today for evaluation. If a rapid strep test is done & is negative, ask for a throat culture to confirm. Rapid strep tests can have false negatives 1 to 3 out of 10 times and miss a lot of strep when negative results are not confirmed. If she should get worse, shortness of breath, severe headache, etc. To ER. ...Read more

19mo old has rash on face around mouth after eating cottage chz & cantaloupe. She's eaten these foods before but not usually this messy. Any concerns?
Could be allergic:
Allergy typically requires a-repeat-exposure to have the reaction. Since the child is getting the rash, it is seemingly just localized, at least for now, from the use of the above--cannot tell which one. Or, it is simply from rubbing/cleaning the mouth too much can cause irritation.
Can try one at a time, don't clean too hard, and see which one causes the rash.
Check with your doc.
Good luck.. ...Read more
