What does a rash following a fever mean?

What does a rash following a fever mean?

Rash after fever: The interesting thing here is a rash can appear 'after' the body has figured out what the infection is from, & how to kill it off. That's why you see the fever go away (because the work of killing the virus is done) and then the rash comes out, as the body finishes off the virus that's 'all over' the body but now being destroyed finally.

My 13 months old daughter has a colds and fever at night time for 2 nights already, and yesterday the fever stop and small pink rashes appeared in bod?

Rash in a child: Good that the fevers have stopped. That is something important to watch. Often, a rash may appear as the immune system recognizes the problem (the virus) and destroys it, creating a temporary rash. The appearance of the rash can tell a lot about the type of infection- such as measles, chicken pox, etc. Hopefully your child has been immunized properly. If doubts about her health, go to the doctor. ...Read more

My 3yr old has been getting up to 104 fevers, rashes, and hives, what's going on?

Hard to tell: Proper assessment will require some history, an exam & possibly lab work. This could be as simple as a transient virus or a more worrisome auto-immune disorder. I would have this evaluated by the child's physician when you can arrange it. If the kid is taking fluids well & playful at least part of the time it can wait until office hours. If the kid is not, start with an urgent care center. ...Read more
