Hi,
How are you? FOU usually warrants further tests to rule out other conditions present. This could be a diagnosis of inclusion especially if  the patient is 4 years old. A referral to an infectious specialist may also help as well as additional tests may be requested. Rash associated with fever may be attributed to viral exanthems. A culture of the discharge from the skin lesions may also help identify the organisms responsible.  Take care and do keep us posted.
