User :   My 2 year old boy has a non-itchy rash on the right side of his torso and right arm. It started out as red spots, but they have now clumped together and spread. He did have a higher than normal temperature and was generally unwell for 2-3 days before the rash came, making me think it was Roseola, but the rash has been there for over 2 weeks now. The doctor gave him Fucidin cream to try for a week but it has had no effect - the rash continues to spread. Photograph: WWW.WWWW.WW Thank you.
