My niece who is 6 month old has recently developed small red spots on her head, they don't look like mosquito bites, because they aren't bumpy. Wondering what it could be. I have some pictures if that would help, but not sure how to send them.

My son hasnt eaten barely anything in 6 days. He has lost a pound, and did not eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner today. He is eating less than 400 calories the entire day. How long do we let this continue. He is on antibiotics for Lyme's disease, but the pediatrician did not think it was related, but thinks he has a virus due to coughing and mild fever (no congestion or runny nose at all). How long do we continue to lethe him starve himself? I had to coax him and beg him to get the 400 calories in, so he didn't do it very willingly. He is 23 months, was 26 lbs, but down to 25 now.
Dr. Ficus,. My 2 year old daughter (almost 3 in one more
Hello, Dr. Ficus, my name is***** 2 year old daughter (almost 3 in one more month) ingested a slice of bread earlier today that accidentally gave here to eat as part of her meal earlier. I did not notice the mold until much later when I went to use the bread again. I know chances are slim of serious problems but I am worried because she immune compromised from another bacterial infection or virus her brother passed on to her a few days ago. So she has had fevers for the past few days nothing bad like 100.5-101.0, then today it was up to 103.7 approximately 2 hours or less after eating the mold bread. I thought maybe it was just her current illness getting worse but then I saw the mold on the bread, she has not vomitted but I ate some of the bread too and experienced abdominal discomfort many hours later. I have been able to drop the fever somewhat down to 100-101 with rotating ibuprofen and acetominophen every 3 hours and her pediatrician will not be available until Monday. Should I take her to the emergency room? And would amoxicillin have any benefit if she did ingest some sort of serious mycotoxin or fungual poison? It is 5am so I completely understand if you cannot immediately respond but if you can please e-mail me (*****@******.***)with a professional opinion I would be in your debt. Also, please let me know the steps to take when finished to ensure that you receive adequate compensation. Thank you for your time.
My 4 year old has a fever, cough, watery eyes, and red rash
My 4 year old has a fever, cough, watery eyes, and red rash on his face. Fever went down with Ibuprofen. No change in rash from Benadryl. I thought it might be fifth disease but a friend says it could be measles?! He's been vaccinated. How can I tell the difference?
