Ok I know the pic is slightly hard to see, but the rash is covering most of her face. It is predominately on her cheeks and nose. I called the doctor and told them she had a rash and a fever and they said likely a virus and to call back to get her in if not better in couple days. I have three kids and none have ever gotten a rash on their face with a virus (back, sides, and belly usually). Anyone seen this with just a virus?

Thanks. At least that is an easy virus that normally goes away on it's own. It would be nice if it was just a virus.
She spent the day with her grandmother who says she did put sunblock on her, but I am wondering now, could an allergy cause a fever?
Most likely it would not cause a fever. Goodness gracious, I hope the doctor can tell you more on this soon. I know it must feel a little scary not knowing!
Thanks for the answer. As of now if it's a virus she has no other symptoms except fever, so I'll hope it doesn't get worse.
Most likely the virus was from contact w/other children. Grannies usually don't carry kiddie virus. I have seen a few like this at my son's daycare. He had a real mild version last week.
Sure enough I posted this and noticed minutes later it is in fact spreading down her arms now. Seems more noticeable when outside. Nothing new used on her. More annoying for me though than her I think. Hoping for virus, easier than an allergy!
Yes, peeples...depending on WHAT the allergy might be, you're right, it can get complicated. I'm sorry to hear the rash is spreading. You may want to let her soak in a slightly warm oatmeal bath. I hope she clears up soon!
