My 15mo old son had a mild fever at the beginning of last week, which then turned into a clear runny nose, which then turned into a cough, and now has a rash with small bumps all over his torso.  The rash does not seem to be itchy at all.  He did receive his first chicken pox vaccine almost 2wks ago.

Hi.  give your doc a call to be safe but many viruses are associated with rashes.  Roseola starts off as a fever issue and then that goes away and a rash on the torso appears.  Just to be safe though, call your pedi and see what they think.  good luck

There are many virus sickness's going round with similar symptoms you describe, I think you will find he'll be okay in a few days .It also has the sound of Roseola which i very common in children of this age group .
