Waiting on a call back from nhs 24.

Dd2 was sent home from nursery yesterday with high temp and rash. Calpol seemed to bring temp down and she was pretty tired.

Spots have got much worse today - gone from a few small ones to large blotches. The pic doesn't really capture it - v angry and red
rash does disappear with glass etc.

She has had chicken pox before.

Any ideas?

Is she fully vaccinated?

Could she be allergic to something?

I'd have said maybe scarlet fever but it's not quite like that

How's her throat and tongue?

Hey haudy. All vaccs up to date. Her throat and mouth seem fine. She's not off food and drink.

Should say - whole body covered in patches like this

Is it anywhere else?

I think you should see a gp if it's all over. How is she in herself now?

She seems fine. Eating and drinking ok, wet nappies etc.
She hasn't been running a temp since yesterday.

NHS 24 rang back. Said possible chicken pox again?

Doesn't look like chicken pox spots to me. Wishing her a speedy recovery poor little thing x

Rosella??? That rash usually starts after the fever goes I think.

Hi folks. Thanks for your posts.
Took her to docs this morning. A post viral reaction / rash.
