child's cough and rash

My 7 yr. old daughter has had an on-again-off-again cough for the last 5 days.  This morning she was complaining about an itchy rash on her wrist.  When I went to look at it (thinking it was a bug bite) I noticed the rash was all the way up her arm and was also on her face and upper chest and just starting on the back of her neck.  She has no other symptoms, is as active as ever, and insisted she was going to school.  Anyone know what this could be?

Did you ever get an answer on this?  My 13 yr. old son has similar symptoms.  We thought it was a reaction to cough medicine.  This morning he's home from school and we just found out that a neighbor boy is also home with a rash all over his body.
