No rash decisions!: There are so many causes for different types of rashes, that without knowing what is causing the rash, it's hard to tell you how to treat it.

For instance, the rash with scarlet fever goes away once strep infection tx'd. ...Read more

You : You can see a small fine red rash after a MMR vaccine but the rash you describe has occurred too long after receiving the vaccine. No need to fear the MMR vaccine. The rash you describe sounds like hives. The next time it happens, take a picture of it to show your pediatrician. Phone cameras are great for documenting short lived rashes like this since odds are your child may not have it at the time of the doctor visit. ...Read more
