This rash could be due to a viral cause.
Continue to give sips of oral rehydrating solutions to prevent dehydration.
For rash you can apply calamine lotion externally over skin for the soothing effect.

my daughter 9 yrs, 20kgs is sick she is complaining about headache, vomiting after she eats food, watery stools and sometimes fever from last 6 days. Our dr says it is acute gastroentritis and prescribed junior lanzol, enterogermina and ondansetron for last two days and before completed antinoitic course. blood test proved dengue and malaria negative.
