My 6 year old daughter has a rash over her entire body. She had a fever, sore throat, stuffy nose and tender nodes in her neck last week. What to do?

Get her tested: Chances are she will feel better soon if you do nothing. However, this does sound like strep a & you have 8-10 days from the start of symptoms to identify & treat strep to stop the long term consequences. Rheumatic fever (injury to heart or brain) can quietly come ~a month down the road, kidney injury may already be in the works. Proper rx with abx can stop this before it starts, make the call. ...Read more
