Hi moms, my baby girl woke up from a nap with this rash/spots all over her body. I took her to the urgent care was told by the doctor that “it’s superficial and will go away” couldn’t give a reason or what caused them but wasn’t concerned as she doesn’t have a fever and seems to be acting fine. She is currently on day 7 out of 10 of an antibiotic for an ear infection, but states the rash/spots don’t look like an allergic reaction, but to stop it just in case. Any advice or thoughts

Okay yes I feel like it’s the same thing.

@Jessica it must be the same thing then. Mine started with a cold about 2 weeks ago . She’s 5 months as of the 12th.

My daughter has had it for about 3 week already the ear infection & cold.. & today the rash appeared. They told me it comes with her taking the amoxicillin and her having a cold & told me not to worry about it. It’ll take 3-4 days to go away. How old is baby?

It could be chicken pox as well

@Jessica mine has a cold and ear infection about a week ago then the rash shows up today. How long did the rash last ?

I was going to suggest hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) but that generally comes with a fever. Definitely keep an eye on the rash and check with a doctor if it gets worse

@Mechelle ok thank you

Hi @Mechelle no fever. I keep checking to make sure

Incase it is, just keep her away from other kids and not sure if you can give meds to her but if you can rotate your tynol and ibrophen

Look up roseola is she having any fever?
