Just noticed an odd looking rash on DD1's front and back

they're like little red dots, some bigger than others. Not sure whether it's a heat rash, the dots seem a bit too big to be a heat rash.

She's been a bit out of sorts the past few days but I wouldn't describe her as being ill.

I know it's hard to give advice because you can't see the marks, but wondering what people think.

I'm going to look at the NHS direct website.

most probably a viral rash which appears at the tail end of a cold or similar. Do glass test to check though

they disappeared when I did glass test.

She has had a bad cold, it lasted a few weeks but she was mostly over it a week or so ago. Could it be like you say LIZS a viral rash connected to this cold?

Mine often get non-specific viral rashes. If you're worried, then see a dr. I think you're instinct will tell you whether to worry or not. How is she in herself?

roseola maybe? That causes mild symptoms, then a few days later a rash which explains the out-of-sorts behaviour.
