Customer Question
My daughter has been fighting...
My daughter has been fighting off a red splotchy rash for three weeks. It comes and goes in various areas at random times. She had been doing better and we went to the beach last week. When we were heading home yesterday morning a lymph node on the base of her neck was and still is swollen and the rash appeared again for a while. Today she has developed a fever which is currently 104.4. Drs have told us to just monitor its something viral but my worry is going to much scarier thoughts. Any idea what this is.

Hello, A viral rash usually is having first a fever then rash, not other way round. So she has an allergy with added virus or other infection super-added. A blood test is advisable to test for eosinophils count, CRP test to check for bacterial nature of fever.

Bacterial origin more likely if she has painful, tender to touch neck node. Please get a throat strep swab test as well.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
