my 18 month old has small red bumps on her stomach. she had them before about 6 weeks after the chicken pox vaccine, so the doc thought it was break thru chicken box. Now 2 months have gone by and they have happened again. It starts out as one or two little places, and today (about 4 days later) there are 11 (plus one on her hip and one on her back).
It isn't bed bugs because she has been sleeping with us, and neither of us have bites. (She normally sleeps in her crib but a vacation 4 weeks ago where she had to sleep with us plus 2 colds has messed up her sleeping habits).
Which is another thing, she had a 103.6 fever 3 days ago for 2 days. No symptoms, just picky eating while sick, which was about the start of the bumps.
They are red and about the size of a sweet pea with a TINY white pustule in the middle... TINY white little dot no bigger than the period at the end of this sentence.
Any thought on what they could be since the doc at Children's Healthcare didn't even know last time and mis-diagnosied her?
It has now moved to her back. About 13 spots clutered together... We will be going to her usual doc in the AM and will move on to a derm if they act unsure. Thank you for your assistance! I had never heard of a viral rash before. I appreciate you posting jagesh50.
