Hi,
How are you and your children? Aside from the rash, what other symptoms are present? Infectious cause is indeed likely if you all have the same symptoms. However, to determine if this is due to bacterial or viral infection, further evaluation may need to be done including blood tests and direct clinical examination of the skin rash. Viral infection usually resolves after a few days of rest and symptomatic care. However, if it persists and other symptoms arise, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
