toddler with purple spots on cheeks

HI. My 2 year old son developed a sort of "butterfly rash' of small purple dots on his nose and cheeks a few days ago.  It seemed to fade but it has returned moreso on his outer cheekbone area now.  I'm concerned because he has been complaining he is tired all the time the past few weeks and also threw up one day last week for seemingly no reason.  I don't know if it is all related or not.  One of his 2-year molars just poked through a couple days ago as well.  I haven't noticed it anywhere else on his body, although he does have molescum (molluscum) contagiousum on his neck.  Do you think it could just be some sort of viral lesions or should I get him checked out?
