This sounds typicaly like Roseola.
This is a viral fever in which a rash occurs on the third to fourth day.
However, you should consult her Pediatrician for this to be sure. Although roseola can be treated quite well with home care, you need to consult her doctor to be sure that is roseola.
Till you get to the doctor, I would suggest: Rest
. Keeping her well hydrated is vital, you should give plenty of fluids like Pedialyte and Gatorade.. Tylenol
suspension for fever if it does occur again.
If fever runs very high, you can try with ice packs
, you can use a towel kept in the fridge or a dry bag of ice, you should apply it over the forehead and under the arms..
You should carefully watch out for signs of dehydration which would include no urination for 6 hours, very high colored and scant urine, lethargy, dry mouth, deep rapid breathing, fast pulse, etc. You must go to the ER if you notice any of these signs.
You should also consult her pediatrician once for this.
