My daughter had pink eye last Tuesday and started running a fever the same night up to 103 degrees. The fever reduced after a few days (and the pink eye healed with Erithemycin eye gel) but then Friday night she had a hot itchy rash all over her body, that went away with benedryl. The fever is gone as of yesterday (Tuesday) but she is still getting the itchy rash at least once a day. It shows up all over her body. It looks like little small bumps in clusters on random spots of her body. She has also been eating less but has normal BM's. The Dr. said that she had a virus and this is just the rash coming out from the virus and it could last awhile and not to be alarmed unless the fever comes back again. Any thoughts? Thanks!View Thread
