What are the signs of rheumatic fever ?

Hi, 7 year old daughter had strep throat infection 21/2 months ago(on March 22) . We didnt realize it was strep throat. She got alright after 3 to 4 days. On the 3rd day she had rashes on her body. It went away in 2 days. We realized that hers was strep only when her younger brother got strep after one week. We took her to doctor and doctor gave her 10 day antibiotics . So she had her antibiotic 3 weeks after she had strep. Now She is haivng fever for 3 days with some leg pain. Is it Rheumatic fever?
