My 4yr old son has been sick for the last week with a fever, cough, congestion, joint pain, ringing in his ears, and now a rash on his face and sore on his arm. I noticed last week that his cheeks were flushed but I figured it was from the fever but now that the fever is gone, the rash on his face noticable. The rash looks like little bumps but all together in a bright red circle with some of the little red bumps are on his nose and lips. The rash is also dry and flaky. Then last night he started crying that his arm hurt and I noticed a little brown spot on it so I circled it to keep an eye on it. By the time he went to bed (3 hrs later) the brown spot had turned red and swollen to about twice its size, so I circled it again and decided to check on it in the morning. In the moring I checked his arm, the swelling went down but it is still a little larger than it was in the first place but now it looks more like a sore with a thin clear scab over it.
I am taking him to his doctor today to look at but was curious what other may think.
I should note that two weeks ago he was vaccinated for H1N1, seasonal flu, hepatitis, and pneumonia.
I do not believe that it was caused by the vaccines because the little girl (who is also four) I watch during the day has now become sick. She has no rash or sore, but has the congestion, fever, and cough.
