Can anyone identify this rash on DD

She's covered in it. It blanches under glass. She also has poor appetite and a runny nose. Thanks

I would probably get it checked out to be on the safe side. Cant really see the picture very clearly but good that it blanches. Could it be urticarial? DD had this with a virus once. The GP demonstrated that it would come on by touch and ran a finger nail down her back and it would immediately follow with the rash. Try googling and see if it matches. Have you any piriton? This will really help if it is urticarial.

Thank you. It sounds like it could be that. I'll take her to the GP tomorrow anyway- you're right, it's best to err on side of caution.

Probably viral if there are no other significant symptoms, recent antibiotics etc.

It was, yes- confirmed by GP. I just automatically panic when I see a rash blush

Thank you both
